Dr. Mari Hamill, Los Angeles, CA  – Mari is an engaged volunteer with two art/community organizations – LA’s Best and Inside Out Community Arts.  Building upon her work organizing benefits, speaking with youth about college life and academic goals, and helping children develop creative work, Mari will utilize this grant to develop an outreach project for Inside Out Community Arts.

D. Dona Le, Chicago, IL – A longtime Harvardwood Highlights profile writer and the Co-Chapter Head of the Chicago Chapter, Dona also works with the Westside Writing Project (WWP), a youth enrichment program that uses journalism and digital media as tools for personal transformation and civic engagement.
