GABE W. MILLER MEMORIAL FOUNDATION AWARDS
4th SCHOLARSHIP OF 2007

Audrey TousantOn February 7, 2008, The Gabe W. Miller Memorial Foundation presented its 4th scholarship of the 2007 allocation to Audrey L. Tousant, an MSW student at the University of Southern California (USC). USC matched the scholarship via a tuition credit.

Fortunate to have been adopted by her aunt, Ms Tousant's innate combination of intelligence and motivation led to her graduation in 2005 from the University of California - Riverside. While continuing her education at USC, she has served as a caseworker for the "L.A. Bridges Program" at the Audubon Middle School and as an intern at the Public Counsel's Office. She also volunteers with "Food From The Hood, Inc." Her current internship focuses on the developmentally disabled.

Ms Tousant's professional experience, to date, has exposed her to disadvantaged and at-risk youth, abused and neglected children, learning disabled children and families struggling with the devastating effects of terminal illness. Her internship involves helping to match families in need of legal services with pro bono attorneys as well as serving as liaison between them.

In addition to direct client contact, her responsibilities include developing academic enrichment and extracurricular workshops, organizing and facilitating parent workshops, tutoring, managing and budgeting agency programs and providing advocacy and education for a number of the populations she serves.

Gabe's Foundation is thankful that USC's School of Social Work has introduced it to Audrey Tousant and proud to be able to assist in supporting her in the final year of her MSW program.
