54 Years Old and Living-Breathing Succeeding With Cystic Fibrosis
Episode #0033 Bonnie Strangio Educational Scholarship

Bonnie Strangio $2500 Education Scholarship

Application Deadline: June 30, 2006

The Bonnie Strangio Education Scholarship was established in 2005 to honor the memory of Bonnie Strangio. The scholarship will be awarded to a person living with cystic fibrosis who, like Bonnie, has an upbeat personality and a "can-do" attitude and shows a tremendous passion for life in achieving their goals despite battling CF.

Bonnie loved life and everything in it. She appreciated family, friends, and people in general. She always offered a patient ear to listen to friends. Bonnie held a B.A. in Psychology and Masters in Teaching that took her down the career path of a special education teacher in a New Jersey high school where she focused on allowing learning disabled students to integrate in mainstream society. Strong, brave, and giving, she never felt sorry for herself but strove to make the best of everything. Everyone, young and old, loved her!
