Sturgeon Bay student awarded social justice scholarship

Arleth Nelson-Cooper, a 2020 graduate of Sturgeon Bay High School, has been recognized for her good works across the continent to earn a social justice scholarship from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County. Nelson-Cooper is a native of Honduras and served as a translator for doctors and other medical professionals from the United States who provided care in the country. She is active with her church, volunteering to help families in North Carolina rebuild from Hurricane Florence and assisting at food pantries in New York City. Nelson-Cooper says lending a hand is a family tradition.

 


The $1,000 scholarship will help Nelson-Cooper attend the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the fall, and her goal is to contribute to the Peace Corps before settling into a career with a nonprofit such as UNICEF.
