|HAPPY PAST WINNERS|
The Dr. Robert Mathog Lions Hearing Centers provide up to four $1,000 scholarships each year to high school and college students with documented hearing loss. The scholarship is named after Lion Deborah Love-Peel who has been a lion for nearly 20 years. She has worked with a number of organizations that support Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. Her passion is to create a unique scholarship opportunity for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. She is aware of the needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing young people. She encourages Deaf and Hard of Hearing young people to reach for higher education, but also realizes the challenges they face especially in the reading and comprehension arena.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing students face unique challenges as they attend the college, trade school or university of their choice. Deborah’s dedication and advocacy to this scholarship is fueled by the fact that she has a daughter who is deaf. Her daughter’s personal challenge has been reading comprehension.
|The goal of this scholarship is not only to award students extra finances to attend college,
but to assist and encourage them while in college to succeed in the goals they set for themselves.
|Lion Love-Peel creates partnerships with organizations to establish support processes
for the students who receive these scholarships as they navigate the higher learning
institutions of their choice.
|We need your help as fellow Lions, community leaders and business owners.
Please go back to your clubs and organizations, places of employment and
help us raise the consciousness and funds we need to have a successful scholarship.
