Main Content

Brooklyn Mills of Ellisville, Miss., a sophomore Luckyday Citizenship Scholars at The University of Southern Mississippi and honor student majoring in psychology, is the recipient of a Luckyday Study Abroad Scholarship.

The Luckyday Study Abroad Scholarship is a $4,000 competitive scholarship open to Luckyday Scholars who have completed at least 30 credit hours, are at least in their second year at Southern Miss, and are in good standing with the Luckyday Program. The scholarship may be applied to any study abroad program offered through Southern Miss during 2014.

Mills will study Recreation for a Diverse Society, a two-week course in Jamaica during the summer of 2014. She is the daughter of David and Sarita Mills.

“I chose this study abroad opportunity because I really want to carry out my role as a servant leader in an unfamiliar place, experience a diverse society, and become more aware of the world around me I chose to take the Recreation Studies class so that I could help those with disabilities in Jamaica to better prepare me for my future career in Occupational Therapy.”
