The Lori Brener Memorial Scholarship Fund honors the late Lori Brener, who was a dedicated volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami. When she passed away in 2009, the BBBS Women’s Committee re-named the existing Women’s Committee Scholarship Fund in Lori’s memory to ensure her legacy is survived through scholarship recipients engaging in lifelong learning and achieving their full potential.
Like the Five Millers Scholarship, the Lori Brener Scholarship is open to all Littles who graduated from any of the BBBSM programs. Scholarships are awarded to those who have been accepted in vocational or technical programs, two-year colleges, or four-year universities, and who have overcome a major obstacle to get where they are today. Preference is given to those whose Big helped them overcome that obstacle, emphasizing the importance of the BBBSM programs. Scholarship winners are selected by an Advisory Council comprised of community business leaders and other supporters of BBBSM.
We want to make sure our Littles walk across the BIG stage. This year, in lieu of an event, we are asking our family, friends and supports to make a contribution towards our Lori Brener Scholarship Fund.
We hope you will continue your support. Your donation will be matched, thanks to the Stanley Tate’s STARS legacy fund via Florida Pre-paid college foundation.
