R3 Stem Cell, the global leader in regenerative therapies, announced the 2021 winner of its Scholarship Award. Ms. Lacey Leonhardt is the winner.
R3 Stem Cell, the global leader in regenerative therapies, has announced the 2021 winner of its Scholarship Award. Ms. Lacey Leonhardt, a student at Johnson & Wales University, is the third winner of the Annual Scholarship.
Ms. Leonhardt’s academic record has been absolutely stellar. She recently graduated from the University with an overall 3.92 GPA and majored in Business Studies. This month, she began the MBA program at Johnson & Wales in Organizational Leadership.
According to Dr. David Greene, CEO of R3 Stem Cell, “Lacey absolutely crushed it with her undergraduate class record. But what truly set this young lady apart was her outstanding essay. A couple of years ago, she donated bone marrow for her father who had cancer. As a result of her stem cells, her father is over a year out and is healthy and cancer-free!”
Here is a paragraph from Lacey’s essay. “I never imagined I would be saving the life of the person who gave me life. It has now been over a year and I am happy to say that my father is alive, healthy, and cancer-free. I am so grateful for the progress in medicine and the ability to bring life to one another through stem cells. I believe that stem cells will only continue to perform miracles in other various types of cancers, diseases, and sicknesses. I also believe that medicine will continue to progress and focus on the possibilities of stem cells. ”
“Lacey absolutely crushed it with her undergraduate class record. But what truly set this young lady apart was her outstanding essay. She completely deserves the scholarship!”
