Charlotte Bacon Scholarships

Charlotte Bacon Scholarships
In honor of Charlotte’s 10th birthday, Newtown Kindness and the Bacon family, continue to honor her life by establishing and supporting scholarships in her name.  Two organizations, NC State College of Veterinary Medicine and the MISS Foundation, received $2200 each to help fund these scholarships.
The Charlotte Bacon Veterinary Education Scholarship is awarded to 1st – 3rd year veterinarian students with significant service to children in an educational or community setting.  It is our goal to see this scholarship reach endowment and thereby graduating generations of veterinarians who are inspired by Charlotte’s legacy of kindness and love for animals. To help us achieve this goal you may follow this link to make a donation in Charlotte’s name:  https://ccfn.ncsu.edu/advancement-services/giving/VM/.
The Charlotte Helen Bacon Selah Scholarship is a scholarship that will help a bereaved couple that is grieving a death of a child.  The couple will attend the annual Selah Retreat offered through the MISS Foundation. Selah translates: Pause, Reflect – Fully Inhabited Grief.  The MISS Foundation has been a great source of support to the Bacon family.  They are honored to help another family discover the MISS Foundation and support this family’s grief journey as they honor and remember their beloved child.  For more information on the Selah Retreat or to donate to the Charlotte Helen Bacon Selah Scholarship, please visit http://www.missfoundation.org/retreat

    Joel and Jojo, what a wonderful way to remember Charlotte. You have both done so much to keep her memory alive! I’m sorry for you but also very proud! I’ll always remember you Jojo from the days when you were little and sometimes wish we could go back to those days. I don’t suppose you remember when we had you, Diane and one other when your Mom went to the hospital to have one of your brothers. It was a busy household!!! I remember bathtime – it was like a production line with 5 kids to bathe and that didn’t include Mike. I could go one and on but maybe short spurts later on!! Peace!
