A teen in Maryland has created a scholarship for students with learning differences and financial need. Scott Pawley is only 15, but he realized there was no existing scholarship for students in the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Special Education and Inclusion programs, so he started one. The freshman at Calvert Hall College High School says, “I just think it’s good to help other people.” Source: CBS Baltimore

A father in Virginia was able to save another dad’s life by becoming his blood stem cell donor. Troy Phelps registered to be a donor back in 2013 and didn’t think about it until June 2019, when he got a call that he was a match for someone with a rare blood cancer. That was Dalton Grizzle, a fellow Virginian, who’s responded so well to the stem cell transplant that the men have been able to meet in person. Source: NBC 12
