Toby Candidora Memorial Scholarship Fund Recipient, Bellevue University
The Toby Kim Candilora Scholarship was a huge help to me as I completed my MPA. As a full-time working mom of 2 young children, going back to school was a huge commitment of time and money for our family. But it was all very well worth it!
Since graduating with my masters, I have taken on a new role as director of Foundation relations for the University of Nebraska Foundation. It is a job that I love – and one that I would not have considered before going back to school and really thinking about what I am passionate about.
In my role, I get the opportunity to work with many talented faculty and leaders across the university, to connect them with private foundations across our state and country. I also get the opportunity to work many generous donors.
Thank you for supporting students at Bellevue University – and please know the difference that your scholarship made for me and my family. I’m honored to have received the scholarship in Toby’s memory.
