Union High School senior Mya-Nicole Brooks received a $750 scholarship from Shake a Paw
to help her pursue her animal science studies at Rutgers University next fall.
"Mya-Nicole was an easy candidate to select for the scholarship," said Jeff Morton, President, Shake A Paw. "Her academics were excellent, she had participated in several animal related extracurricular activities, and has selected to continue her dream of becoming a veterinarian."
"Animal science was one of my first and most prominent interests growing up," said Brooks. She said as a child she couldn't have a dog or cat, but had three pet parakeets, who taught her the joys and wonders of animal life. Brooks said she also watched every animal-related show she could find on television.
