Rothco Scholarship Student Excels!

Anna Kraus is a Rothco scholarship recipient for 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 academic years. Anna is attending the Rochester Institute of Technology, carrying a full course load, and earning a 3.6 GPA  – majoring in Bio-Molecular Chemistry!

Featuring Anna
During the interview portion of our scholarship selection process, Rothco offered Anna the opportunity to conduct her interview by e-mail, because she is deaf.  Anna refused.  We scheduled the interview and discovered that Anna does not let her deafness define her.  Rather she views it as a way to help and encourage other students.  We were very proud and honored to offer our scholarship to this deserving young woman, and we look forward to watching her succeed.

Recently, Anna won the Girl Scout USA’s 2014 Young Women of Distinction award.

As an active and accomplished young deaf woman, Ann worked tirelessly for 3 years to amend the NY State Testing and Accommodation guidelines for Students with Disabilities. She is both bright and determined, and Rothco is very proud to be a part of her success!
