2015 Niles Piecemakers
Our very first scholarship recipient is Alyssa Jones. I had the great honor to present her with the Scholarship at the Niles High School Awards assembly. Alyssa was involved with Student Council, the Niles High School Newspaper, leader of the yearbook, and a Senior Class Officer. She worked at Veni’s Sweetshop, volunteered at the Salvation Army, had a photography internship at Amy Reinert photography, was a participant in the Miss Niles Pageant placing in the top six, and was a Peace by Piece volunteer helping to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Alyssa plans on attending St. Mary’s in the fall to study Business. Her business degree will go toward opening her own boutique clothing shop. During her college years she will be researching fashion merchandising and working at a clothing or formal wear store. Her dream is to destroy the unrealistic expectations of beauty and encourage the unique beauty and personality that every person holds within their heart by providing a unique shop where everyone that comes in can find that special something to make them feel beautiful. Congratulations Alyssa!! We wish you all the best at St. Mary’s and beyond!!
