The National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) announced in March that Jenna Reed of Fleetwood has been named one of NSSLHA’s first undergraduate scholarship recipients.
The award from the national organization will help offset the cost of Reed’s education in the five-year speech-language pathology program at Misericordia University. Reed submitted an application and a reference letter from a professor for the competitive undergraduate scholarship program
The daughter of Steven and Lori Reed also organized a service opportunity for students in MU’s Chapter of NSSLHA. Misericordia’s students volunteered at the inaugural fundraiser for Brighter Journeys, a local organization that funds medical equipment not covered by insurance for children with special needs.
An active member of the campus community, Reed is a flutist for campus liturgy, a team member of Campus Ministry, a member of Mercy Leaders and the leader of the Adopt-a-Veteran program on campus.
