We want to make it easier for them to pursue their educations and provide better lives for themselves and their children.
Provo, UT (Vocus) September 15, 2010
Paragon Wealth Management, an investment firm in Utah, gave two single mothers full-tuition scholarships on Sept. 11 at their Appreciation Gala at the Tuscany Restaurant in Salt Lake City.
Paragon created the Live Your Dream Scholarship in 2010 for single mothers who are widowed or divorced.
“I’ve always wanted to set up a scholarship like this,” said Katie Bunnell, Live Your Dream Scholarship Co-Chair. “It was a dream come true to actually present the scholarships that night to two amazing women.”
The scholarship was created in honor of Bunnell. She became a single mother unexpectedly in 2005 when her husband passed away. She went back to school to be able to provide better for herself and her daughter, but ran into several roadblocks along the way.
“We want to help single mothers in similar situations as Katie,” said Dave Young, President of Paragon and Bunnell’s father. “We want to make it easier for them to pursue their educations and provide better lives for themselves and their children.”
Paragon hosted a silent auction the night of the Appreciation Gala to raise money for the scholarship. Paragon also hosted a 5K Run/Walk in May to raise funds. Paragon matched the proceeds.
