Impact Story

2022 Girls Inc. National Scholarship Program Recipient


Cree Small has been
chosen as a 2022 Girls Inc. National Scholar and
awarded a $5,000 Girls Inc. Lucile Miller Wright
scholarship. She was selected for her outstanding
academic achievements, community service work, and
dedication to the Girls Inc. mission of inspiring all girls to
be strong, smart, and bold. Cree Small is one of 27
Girls Inc. National High School Scholars selected from across the United States and Canada. The
Girls Inc. Lucile Miller Wright Scholarship program was
created in 1992, when the female pilot and long-time
supporter gave a bequest for scholarships for young women. Over $7 million in Girls Inc. scholarships have made post-secondary education more accessible to high school women and has inspired them to succeed in school and consider a broad range of career possibilities.

Cree has been coming to Girls Inc. for 10 years starting when she was six years old. This past summer Cree was hired as summer camp
counsellor and is a strong, smart and bold advocate sharing her experiences at our upcoming fundraising event. We are so proud of her as she is the reason why we do the work we do. Congratulations!

“Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it and I’m so happy and excited by this opportunity !! I wouldn’t have been able to even dream of winning anything if it wasn’t for the continual support I get from amazing staff like you all, who have always made me feel brilliant. I haven’t been able to stop smiling, I’m so so appreciative.

Thank you again,
Cree Small”
