2 Alaskans win Pride college scholarships

Two LGBT college students from Alaska received Pride Foundation scholarships for the 2010/11 school year: Tonei Glavinic and Kady Titus.
Tonei Glavinic is a Queer 20 year old from Anchorage, AK. Tonei is a student at American University in Washington, DC and is pursuing a degree in Political Science and Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies. Tonei wants to thank Anchorage Youth Court, GLSEN, the ACLU, and everyone who has supported Tonei's work over the years. Tonei is a Public Policy and Advocacy Intern at the Task Force; volunteer at a pro-choice clinic; Executive Director of American University Queers and Allies; and will be a Resident Assistant next year.

Tonei won the following scholarships: Pride Foundation Community, Political Leadership, and Scott Rodriguez Leadership

Kady Titus is 21, bisexual, and an Alaskan Native. She is currently a freshmen at Haskell Indian Nations University studying Social Work. Kady owes a huge "thank you" to Kathy Halverson, who was Kady's first social worker from Foster Care. Kady says, "She stayed with me throughout everything."

"My plans and aspirations are the same now as they were almost 10 years ago: to open the interior of Alaska's first Transitional Living Program with special services geared toward GLBT youth and foster children."

Kady won the following scholarship: Pride Foundation/Alaska

Congratulations to Tonei, Kady and all 108 scholarship recipients! More information on the annual scholarship program can be found at PrideFoundation.org.
