Laura Scruggs – Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults

Laura Scruggs has been busy!  A recent college graduate of the University of Delaware, with degrees in Political Science and Spanish, she co-founded Visions for Haiti, a nonprofit committed to bringing dedicated Haitian college students to American universities to finish their educations.  She also studied abroad in Santiago, Chile, was president of the UD Club Softball team and volunteered with both FIRN and the International Rescue Committee.  So it was no surprise that she sought out a challenge for the “gap year” between undergraduate and graduate school.  Laura serves as the Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Baltimore, MD, recruiting college students to form clubs that will inform and empower young people in the fight against cancer and promote service to those dealing with cancer.  “I applied to Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults because of my family’s connection to the cancer community and my belief in their message of hope and optimism.” Laura said when asked about her motivation to do AmeriCorps service.  Her goal is to be able to look back years from now, see her work continued, and know that her contributions helped ensure that no college student has to face cancer alone.
