Where are they now? – Mallory Maus, 2013 Scholarship Recipient
Mallory Maus, Bruce Gregory Temple Memorial Scholarship Recipient
We reconnected with Mallory Maus, one of our 2013 scholarship winners. In 2013, Maus was selected as the recipient of the Bruce Gregory Temple Memorial Scholarship. Maus is one of the hundreds of Brown County residents who have received scholarships through the Brown County Community Foundation.
About Mallory Maus:
Maus began her college career at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in the fall of 2013 as a Forensic Science and Biology major. After spending a semester at school Maus realized her passion for Criminal Justice. Since then, Maus has been admitted to IUPUI’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) where she is currently a Criminal Justice major and a Spanish minor. Maus plans to dedicate her life to serving the public as a probation officer in the criminal justice system.
Outside of the classroom, Maus has volunteered her time with Young Life, a nationwide non-profit organization which ministers to high school students. Maus and her fellow Young Life leaders spent 10 hours each week of the school year working with students in Zionsville. During the summer of 2014, Maus volunteered at Young Life’s Washington Family Ranch in Oregon. Maus plans to continue her volunteer work with Zionsville Young Life with a summer 2015 internship.
Scholarship Success Story:
Maus shared “Upon receiving the Temple Scholarship from the Brown County Community Foundation I was able to continue to pursue my dream of receiving a higher education. When entering my freshman year having the Temple Scholarship allowed me to also help give back to the community by becoming a volunteer leader in Zionsville, IN for an organization that had a huge impact on my life while in high school in Brown County.
I think that scholarships are important to have when going to college because they make you appreciate your education more and can inspire you to help make a difference, whether that is by giving back to the community, participating in research or being a part of organizations on your college campuses. For me receiving scholarships from the Brown County Community Foundation also made me appreciate my hometown . . . and the support the community has for it’s residents and graduates from BCHS.”
The Brown County Community Foundation congratulates Maus on her educational success and applauds her for giving back to her community by volunteering with Young Life. Maus will undoubtedly have a positive impact on her community serving in the criminal justice system as a probation officer and as a community volunteer.
Maus is one of many Brown County Community Foundation scholarship winners who is pursuing a career in Indiana and working to make our Hoosier state a better place to live and to work.
