Carstons Scholar - Mathew Baldwin

Matthew Baldwin, graduated in May 2016 from Lincoln Southeast High School. “My school counselor thought I’d be a good fit for the Carstens Scholarship because I have struggled my whole life with visual impairment, but I never allowed that to get in my way. I was a high achieving student because I always pushed myself, even though schoolwork was really hard for me.”

According to Matthew, “The biggest thing I think for determining future success is hope. If you don’t have hope for a better tomorrow, you’re not going to be inspired to work hard today.”

Baldwin plans on majoring in Accounting, and he is considering career paths such as Tax Law, or becoming a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). He is interested in being involved in the financial side of professional sports. “We have a really good school system, and there are a ton of resources that can help students find opportunities like this scholarship from the Foundation for LPS – it is like a dream come true.”
