Spring is the season of giving!

Lakeland is successful because of people like you.

“Upon graduation, I am looking forward to working for the Sheboygan Area School District. I chose to study Elementary and Middle School Education because I believe every child has the right to quality education, and deserves equity and equality. I am devoted to being part of this process. As a teacher, I look forward to putting to use the knowledge and preparation I have acquired at LU to help children learn and reach their full potential.

I am most humbled to receive this scholarship and other financial aid. Not only has it helped me financially, but also, has given me even more motivation to know that the community I live in is involved and willing to help students like myself. You are contributing to the future, our future. I will continue my journey to accomplishing my goal of becoming a high-quality teacher with less worry about not being able to afford my education.” – Ariana Soto ‘24
