Stella Proudfit Region 8 Sponsor: DH Pace Co, Tempe, AZ School: Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ "I aspire to have my words and ideas shared with the public through any means necessary in order to inspire good. My overall life goal that I would love to achieve is to just have my work make a difference in at least one person's life. As a freshman, my major at Northern Arizona University is Journalism and Political Science merged, and with that as a background, it would be a great foundation to get my word out in order to make that difference. This scholarship is one stepping stone that will allow me to further my goals into actuality." Diana Sokol, teacher, wrote, "Stella goes above and beyond on every assignment." Honored by Industry Cumulative Giving Contributor, Garaga Taylor Rands Region 10 Sponsor: Vision Overhead Doors, Enderby, BC, Canada School: Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, BC, Canada "My future goal is to become a social worker. I have spent the last 4 years focusing and helping those in need. I have been a youth healthcare volunteer for Parkview Place Retirement home for over 4 years, as well as going on mission trips to Kenya, Africa and Belmopan, Belize to help orphans of the aids epidemic and to work building schools. I have also collected for my local homeless shelter and women's transitional home in my home town. I have done extensive work with the Gleaners Society and Operation Christmas Child, sending gifts to children in third world countries. My life has been and will continue to be devoted to assisting others and bettering the lives of those around me. I am extremely grateful to the IDA for their part in helping me to achieve these goals." "Taylor is known as having an amazingly positive attitude. Her teachers and peers respect and admire her. She is incredibly kind and compassionate with others," offered Dianne Middleton, BSc., Pleasant Valery Secondary School.

Since I was a little kid, I have always wanted to open up my own business and now that it is coming closer to reality, I am reaffirmed that following graduation I will open up my own business. I feel extremely fortunate for the opportunity that I've had to learn about operating a business through Central Utah Door and the generosity that IDA provided to help make my dream of graduating in entrepreneurship a reality!" Carley Rortvedt Industry Sponsor: Midland Garage Door Mfg, West Fargo, ND School: University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, ND "I am a junior at the University of North Dakota. I am pursuing a bachelor's degree in Medical Laboratory Science with a minor in Psychology. My goal is to continue on to graduate school for an MLS or a related healthcare field so that I can make a difference in the lives of patients through laboratory innovation and research. I am very grateful to IDA for supporting these aspirations." (continued on page 29) 26 International Door & Operator Industryâ„¢ (continued from page 24) Congratulations! IDA Scholarship Recipients!
