Each Fall since 2012, CUSSW has awarded the Mary Powell Scholarship for the Promotion of Social Responsibilty to a deserving graduate student dedicated to making the world a better place. Pictured here is Emily, a graduate of Northeastern University and winner of the scholarship two consecutive years (2013-14. 2014-15)  Emily has worked in a charter school in Harlem and interned at a Brooklyn high school as a Student Advocate Counselor. As Emily personifies the ideals of Mary Powell, perhaps the most amazing surprise of the many pleasant ones the Foundation has enjoyed since our inception, was learning that the Brooklyn high school Emily interned with is the same one that Mary Powell graduated from 78 years ago!
