Our recipient for the 2020 and 2022 LQG Scholarship is Kelly Ross, on behalf of Totonga Bomoi.
Ms. Ross is the Program Director at Totonga Bomoi. Totonga Bomoi has a chance to clear a pathway of economic success for refugee and immigrant women in eastern Nebraska by providing them the opportunity to achieve financial independence and social capital through artisan mentorships and business education.
The $1,000 scholarship will provide for training and supplies to educate Ms. Ross and a team of two more refugee/immigrant women on the logistics and skills required to create textile arts, namely quilting.
