Amariyanna “Mari” Copney, aka “Little Miss Flint,” has made national headlines as she leads the crusade to help Flint, MI get clean water and other things needed to make their city whole once again. Well, the tiny advocate is back in the news again and this time, Copeny is receiving instead of giving.
Central Michigan University has already called dibs on Copney by offering the 10-year-old a four year $25,000 scholarship to their university.
President of CMU, George E. Ross, has been taking note of all Copeny’s hard work and dedication to her mission.
“I am proud that you are a member of our CMU family and represent us in such an impressive manner.” Ross stated according to Michigan Live. “Mari, your achievements serve as a leadership example to our entire university, this state, the nation and beyond. Thank you for putting your stamp on the world.”
Even though Copney is a few years away from going to college, we without a doubt know that she will definitely put that scholarship to good use not only for herself but for the betterment of those around her. Congratulations, Mari! We can’t wait to see more of your amazing story to come.
