Lauryn Gant

Freshman, Tuskegee University

“This endowment is a huge blessing to my family and me. Not only is it preventing my parents from coming out of pocket, but it’s also allowing me to attend the illustrious Tuskegee University and tap into my passion for animals. Now that I’m here I’ve realized that choosing Tuskegee was the best decision I could’ve made for college. I’m meeting great people and am moving one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Veterinarian. I owe a lot of this to the Joshua David Gardner Scholarship Foundation and I couldn’t be more grateful, so thank you again.”
