Kylie Davis on graduation day from CU

The Casey Feldman Foundation is proud of all of it’s scholarship recipients, especially those who are first generation college students and in particular, Kylie Davis who just graduated this year from the University of Colorado Boulder. Kyle earned 2 degrees at graduation, a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and also a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Kylie worked 35 hours per week at 3 different jobs to finance her education and make ends meet. Despite her schedule, she made time to give back through community service.

Kyle has moved to Chicago to work as an Assistant Lab Manager on the Center for Decision Research team at the University of Chicago Booth. “Both of my degrees have granted me the opportunity to start a career that I am passionate about. As a child, I wanted to understand the world on a deeper level, and now it will be my career to ask questions and seek out answers….This role will allow me to live out my research dreams,” says Kylie.

However, this won’t be the end of Kylie’s formal education. Her future plans include going back to school to earn a Ph.D.

Congratulations Kylie!
