Minette’s Angels General Scholarship

For the past 10 years, Minette’s Angels has awarded scholarships to graduating high school seniors as they begin their college education to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Each year the scholarship committee receives submissions from students who have aspirations to become doctors, nurses, researchers, lab technicians and psychologists. This year Minette’s Angels is pleased to award Luliana Benanchietti of Verona High School with this scholarship as she begins her studies to become a clinical psychologist.

Benanchietti embodies all the characteristics that the foundation values. She has showed courage, compassion, and determination in every aspect of her life. From tutoring elementary school students to being a strong support system for her family and friends when they needed her the most, Benanchietti found a passion for helping others, which led her to want to pursue a career in psychology.

Congratulations, Lulianna! We are confident that you are going to make a big impact as a psychologist and can’t wait to see where your career takes you.
