Kate Pennington Lafayette

$1500 Scholarship Recipient   - Kate Pennington Lafayette of Glen Allen, Virgina

Kate will attend The Jepsen School at the University of Richmond and ultimately hopes to work for a non-profit organization helping at-risk children. Kate states that "Surgo Ut Prosim is not a motto; it is a way of life." She has certainly demonstrated this through her volunteer work in her local community helping young adults with physical and psychological challenges, homeless adults and at-risk children. Kate was sponsored by her father, Michael Lafayette ’86.   He says "I not only remember Surgo Ut Prosim, but try to carry out its meaning by giving back to my community in many ways. These are values that I try to instill in Kate and I think she has already demonstrated an understanding of why service is important to others."
