NextGen, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is designed to help a racially and ethnically diverse group of students with demonstrated leadership potential complete their Youth and Nonprofit Leadership (YNL) certification requirements, specifically the minimum 300-hour nonprofit internship. To date, 22 students in Murray State’s YNL program have received this prestigious award resulting in a total of $99,000 in scholarship funds. Shown from left are Dr. Roger Weis, director of the YNL program at MSU; Kaylyn Evans; Dr. Bob Long, Visiting Distinguished Professor of Nonprofit Leadership at Murray; Ewa Wantulok and Jennifer Wilson, director of the Murray American Red Cross chapter.
