2022 Scholarship Recipients


Hi! My name is Christopher Slone! I’m a seventeen-year-old aspiring lawyer from Powell County, Kentucky. As an avid lover of politics, I’m constantly striving to spread open-mindedness through the messages I preach. I’m a proud advocate and member of the LGBTQ+ community. In my free time, I enjoy watching Stanley Kubrick movies, practicing Korean, and working on my comic, which I plan to publish in the next few years.

I can’t tell you how incredibly thankful I am to have received this scholarship. To know that my scholarship application was able to touch the hearts of those who have inspired millions of young lives around America will never cease to amaze me. I would like to give a special thanks to my family, friends, teachers, and my trapper hat for helping me become who I am today. And to the lovely people at SFTS, thank you. Thank you for bringing so much love into the world. Thank you for planting seeds in the garden of possibilities and growing them into a legacy.

My name is Hannah Mills and I am a Junior at Wayne State College majoring in Chemistry for Health Sciences for Pre-Medicine and minoring in Spanish and Biology. My hope is to attend the University of Nebraska Medical Center to graduate with my doctorate in Psychiatry. When I’m not attending classes, I keep myself busy being the President of Active Minds at Wayne State College, a group dedicated to destigmatizing mental health. On my days off from school, I love going to work at Behavioral Health Specialists where I serve as a Staff Technician at a short-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. In my free time, I love taking naps, organizing various things, doing arts and crafts, and spending time with my family. I am very honored and thankful to be selected as this year’s scholarship recipient and am grateful for everything the SFTS team does.
