Watch for Illinois REALTOR® story about Kinney scholarships

Amanda Lading

Every year, the number of college students who have benefited from a James M. Kinney Scholarship goes up.  In the October issue of Illinois REALTOR®, find out how many and why the scholarship’s namesake – our 2015 IAR president – is so proud of what it’s accomplished, both individually and collectively.

Your Contributions Can Help Educate Future Recipients of the Kinney Scholarship,” is the title of the story.

As one scholarship recipient, Amanda Lading, puts it: “Winning a scholarship has taught me that nothing is earned without hard work and dedication. If you want something bad enough, and you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can achieve it.”

Lading, who is pursuing a degree in exercise science and a career in occupational therapy, has captured the spirit of what Kinney admires most in the students the scholarships benefit. Following her graduation from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, she will pursue a graduate degree to achieve her goal.
