The Summerlin Children’s Forum (SCF), is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1997 by leaders of Summerlin master-planned community and the developer, The Howard Hughes Corporation. SCF recently awarded college scholarships to three residents of the community that recently graduated from high school.
The graduates include Jason Cornish, a graduate of Faith Lutheran High School and plans to attend Boise State University in the fall to study business; Samantha Silvia Schuetze, also a graduate of Faith Lutheran High School who plans to attend the University of San Diego to study business; and Bailey Cohen, a graduate of Palo Verde High School who will attend the University of California at Davis to study veterinary science.
Cornish, whose inspiration is the Life is Beautiful music festival in Las Vegas, hopes to intern at the Treefort Music Fest in Boise while learning the business side of music. Schuetze chose the University of San Diego for its “changemaking” designation. She hopes to eventually work in the nonprofit sector to improve the lives of the less fortunate. And Cohen, who spent a summer at UC Davis last year, has her eyes set on becoming a veterinarian with a degree in animal science.
The annual scholarship program is open to all graduating high school seniors who reside in Summerlin. The SCF has funded annual scholarships, enrichment grants and special educational programs totaling more than $600,000.
