Meredith is a very driven young lady who comes from a multi-generational farming family. Living in a very rural community and having been homeschooled until high school, Meredith has had a unique path to a top-tier university. She was not particularly supported in her goal of attending an Ivy League institution, which she will be doing next year, and greatly appreciated having someone support her in her goal. She will be attending Cornell this fall and has received a $16,000 scholarship from Children of Tobacco Farmers. Meredith is very excited to attend an Ivy League institution, something she did not think was possible.
