A local student will be able to continue her education this fall with the help of Northpark Mall and Simon Youth Foundation.

Canton resident, Dewansia Sutton, was awarded a $1,500 Simon Youth Foundation Community Scholarship.

The scholarship is awarded in partnership between Northpark Mall and Simon Youth Foundation, a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational and career development opportunities for youth.

Sutton is a recent graduate of Ridgeland High School and represented herself through academic excellence, leadership skills and participation in both school and community activities.

She plans to study Pre-Pharmacy at the University of Mississippi in the Fall.

“We are very proud of the Simon Youth Scholarships program, because it has given us the opportunity to support the academic endeavors of promising youth right here in our community,” said Kasey Dickson, director of marketing and business development at Northpark Mall.

This year, approximately $1.1 million will be awarded.
