Recent Creighton High School graduate, Brienne Fanta was chosen as the 2019 Inspiring Alumnus for Children Scholarship Fund of Omaha. CSF helps provide partial-tuition scholarships so children from low-income families can access the private or parochial K-8 education of their choice.
Fanta was chosen for this newly renamed Tal and Mary Joy Anderson family inspiring alumnus award for reflecting strong characteristics of leadership and perseverance.
She attended St Ludger Elementary on a CSF scholarship and has always been tenacious in her academic excellence. Fanta has shown her leadership skills and determination to succeed in every challenge she has taken on.
During CSF’s annual CHANCE luncheon, Fanta was honored for all of the things she has accomplished.
She gave a short speech to close out the luncheon and shared how beneficial the strong foundation she has established through her education was.
“I stay true to myself no matter what the situation, and I carry with me strong, unbreakable values. As well as guiding me in being a genuine person, the education they provided was incredible,” Fanta said.
