Volunteerism is truly the backbone of America and education is one of the major keys to success. We are put on this earth to serve our fellow man. The Orlando Scholarship Organization exists to assist in making the educational dreams of young men and women come true. It began as the dream of two hardworking women, Jean Miller and Christine David. They wanted to help others who chose to participate in pageants to earn scholarships to better their lives. Throughout the years, they continued to support young women in their journeys.

In 1990, Jean and Christine were introduced to Ms. Gracia Livingston. Gracia was a wonderful woman with a huge heart who generously contributed to her local community through the arts and her church. Gracia understood how pageantry could forever change the lives of young women, so she generously gave.

In 2000, Gracia set up a Foundation to ensure scholarships would always be available. Christine was made Vice President and became the official liaison to pageants assisted by the Foundation.

In 2008,the Orlando Scholarship Organization partnered with the Miss High School America Organization and awarded the national winner a $10,000 scholarship. Since 2008, Christine has insured more young students have had the opportunities to continue their education. The Orlando Scholarship Organization has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships through the Miss High School America Organization.

The Orlando Scholarship Organization has a mission statement that inspires all of us to contribute and help others….

"Our organization exists to honor Mrs. Gracia B. Livingston’s wish to award scholarship opportunities to outstanding young men and women, and their pursuit in higher education"

Once again, the Orlando Scholarship Organization is honored to make $40,000 in scholarship monies available to the Miss High School America Organization in 2020.

The Miss High School America Organization is so grateful for the generosity and support from the Orlando Scholarship Organization and Mrs. Gracia Livingston's ongoing giving heart.

section2_6I am so grateful for the generosity of the Livingston Foundation! Their incredible contribution of a $10,000 scholarship has helped me continue my education! In 2017, I completed my Associates of Arts Degree from the College of Southern Nevada and in 2020, I will graduate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies. From there, I plan to continue on in a Master’s program to receive my Master’s in Crisis Communications. Education has always been so important to me and there is no doubt that the Livingston Foundation Scholarship helps girls like me pursue their dreams by helping them get the education they desire!section2_7

section2_6Going to the University of Florida has been my dream for a while. Studying Telecommunications and Political Science at one of the best public universities is such a huge accomplishment and it's all thanks to The Livingston Foundation for the help and support financially. I couldn't be more grateful for everything they have done for me!section2_7

section2_6There aren't enough words to thank the Livingston Foundation for their generous scholarship and their commitment to promoting scholastic achievement. In May 2018, I graduated with Summa Cum Laude distinction from San Diego State University with a degree in International Security & Conflict Resolution and a minor in Political Science. Ultimately, I plan to work as an American diplomat and promote the realization of human rights around the world. This $10,000 scholarship helped lessen the financial burden of university and for that I'm forever indebted and grateful!section2_7
