Student With CF Wins 17K Scholarship

Solvay Pharmaceuticals announced the 2009 Thriving Student Achiever, Amanda R. In honor of the 17th year of the SolvayCARESSM scholarship program, Amanda was awarded an educational scholarship totaling $17,000. Amanda’s attitude about life is truly inspiring!

"CF is a part of me and who I am, but it runs alongside me and does not stand in my way," said Amanda Rudd, 2009 SolvayCARESSM Thriving Student Achiever and student at Salt Lake Community College, Salt Lake City, Utah. "Earning the Thriving Student Achiever scholarship has lifted some of the financial burden of attending college so that I can focus on my studies to become a dental hygienist.

"Solvay Pharmaceuticals congratulates Amanda on being named the 2009 Thriving Student Achiever," said Dr. Stephen Hill, president of Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "She embodies the positive attitude and spirit of all of our outstanding scholarship recipients, who are each role models for the CF community."
