The 2017 Scholarship Winner

Kayla Lockwood

Indiana University, senior

Award:  $1,000

August 15, 2017

See Kayla’s winning video essay and essay here.

We are pleased to announce Kayla Lockwood as the winner of The 2017 Life Coach Spotter Scholarship for $1,000. Kayla, a senior from Bloomington, IN, was selected from a pool of almost 40 candidates. Candidates had to submit an essay and video, both detailing overcoming a personal challenge, and proof of enrollment in an accredited university.

Kayla composed an incredibly moving essay and video explaining how her life has been affected by the autoimmune disease, lupus. When Kayla was just 15, she lost her best friend, Kaitlyn, to the disease. In a terrible coincidence, Kayla was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 19. Kayla then knew what her purpose in life would be – to work towards better diagnosis and treatment for lupus patients. She would fight this disease for Kaitlyn but also herself.  Congratulations, Kayla!

Applications for our 2018 scholarship open as of August 15, 2017.
