Paying it Forward - 2011 Profiles

Lynn H.


At 63, Lynn accomplished a lifelong dream to complete her Bachelor of Science in Management from University of Phoenix. Lynn learned about the Paying it Forward® Scholarship program soon after having a casual conversation about her University of Phoenix experience with a woman at her local nail salon. Lynn, inspired by fate, contacted the woman, Pam, about her husband, whom Pam had mentioned was at a turning point in his life. After hearing how Anthony lived every day “supporting the dreams and ambitions of others,” Lynn knew she wanted to help a man who never stops thinking of others to make a powerful commitment to himself.
