Scholarship Recipients  


Maxwell S. Copans
Lesley University (Class of 2020)

"I was able to work with my school community to help found the slam poet team and literary magazine, giving my classmates and I creative outlets, as well as opportunities for new friendships and experiences. This led to a service project. Working with my school's English, art and music departments, we were able to make musical instruments more affordable for students.” 

Darby J. H. David
Connecticut College (Class of 2020)

"I thought about what success means to me and it started looking like happiness, possibility, connections, and a life I wanted to live. I began viewing my previously seen failures as opportunities, and took the mentality I had been practicing with One Bead and applied it to my personal experience. I now had the moral imperative to take the adversity and turn it into a chance to learn or an open door adventure."

Darby received the first annual David F. Wroblewski Memorial Scholarship. Proceeds from our Strength bracelet sales are used specifically to fund this award, named in memory of our founder’s father.

Autumn A. Fluetsch
University of Portland (Class of 2020)

“In middle school, I remember being overwhelmed with this idea because I did not feel that I was accomplishing enough to change the world; I couldn’t find a cure to cancer; I couldn’t give food to all the hungry. In the years following, however, I have learned that ever bit helps, and it starts with your own community."

Naudia D. Loftis
John Carroll University (Class of 2020)

“The idea for a rally came to me when a five-year-old boy was killed playing outside during Labor Day weekend in my city. I didn’t know when, where, or how, but I knew I had to do something to make people aware of how serious this problem was. I found the legacy I want to leave: bringing peace to others and being an advocate for the greater good, whether it's volunteering at homeless shelters or marching with my community.”

Katherine N. Weinzierl
Western Reserve Academy (Class of 2017)

“The moment I learned the problem of gender inequality hit so close to home, I knew I wanted to do something to help the women in Ohio who struggle to resist the vicious cycle of human trafficking. Community involvement is the most important piece of the puzzle. No one can create change alone, they need an army of people who are passionate and willing.” 

Katherine’s award was sponsored by one of our vendors, L’Attitude Boston.
