When Crystal Allen received a scholarship and attended her first workshop with the Highlights Foundation, she tried to thank Kent (our founder) when she met him. He appreciated the sentiment, but was more concerned with how she’d use her scholarship from the Foundation to inspire kids. He asked her simply to “Do something with it.”
And that she did.
Now she’s the author of more than five books for children, and has taught on our faculty.
In 2019, she paid it forward with a donation to our scholarship fund. Thank you Crystal!
