Honored by Industry Cumulative Giving Contributor, Liftmaster Bailey Morgan Region 3 Anderson Overhead Door, Carterville, IL School: Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL "I am a freshman at Southern Illinois University - Carbondale with a major in biological science. Once I have completed my undergraduate degree, I hope to continue in graduate school toward a master's as a physician's assistant. I developed Type 1 diabetes at age 13 and want to specialize in pediatric endocrinology so that I can help train children with Type 1 diabetes, how to manage their disease. I will finish school in the spring of 2023." Bailey exhibits great compassion for children and adults by making her goal of health care "a process of keeping someone healthy and alive, and as painless as it possibly can be." Spencer Mund Industry Sponsor: Reed City Tool & Die, Reed City, MI School: Ferris State University, Big Rapids, MI "I am very grateful to the International Door Association for awarding me with a scholarship for the 2017school year. I will be in my second year at Ferris State University working toward my bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Associate's degree in Accounting. I hope to use these degrees to have a career in a management position in the plastic injection molding industry." Boris Perdija Region 10 Sponsor: Overhead Door Co of Vancouver, Coquitlam, BC, Canada School: Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC, Canada "I am a graduating student from Centennial Secondary. I have always felt a fascination with science and the way it affects our society. Because of this curiosity I have decided to pursue a field in science at Simon Fraser University this fall. While my role in the discipline has yet to be determined, I have always been eager to help those around me and can happily say that this has shaped me into the person I am today. I would like to believe my purpose is to become a biomedical engineer - dedicating my time to helping others, while having an opportunity to work in a relatively new and exciting field of study. This goal will barrage me with new and changing challenges and I couldn't imagine anything more rewarding. Since I will be studying a craft that I am passionate for, the struggles I face will be met with pure fulfillment. Thank you to the IDA Scholarship Foundation for providing students aid with their education. This generosity goes a long way with fuelling students towards their dreams and allows them to focus on one of the most important aspects of life: learning." Taylor Pokuta Region 3 Sponsor: American Door & Dock, Schaumburg, IL School: Kapi'olani Community College, Honolulu, HI "My plan is to attend Kapi'olani Community College for two years and earn an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing. Then I will take the NCLEX-RN Exam and become a Licensed Practical Nurse. I will spend a few years working in the field with the education I acquired up to this level, in an effort to help others with their health care needs. I will return to school to earn both my Bachelor and Master of Science degree in Nursing, so I can pursue my ultimate dream of becoming an Emergency Room Nurse Practitioner. I believe that with a plan, hard work and dedication, anything is possible. It is a long journey, and a big goal, but I will take on the challenge so that I can make a difference in the lives of others. I have a lot of schooling ahead of me and receiving this IDA Scholarship will boost my determination to achieve my goal." (continued on page 26) (continued from page 22) Congratulations!
