Janell was a proud mother of two, and a strong advocate of education to her children. Thus, it was an easy decision for her family to award a scholarship in her honor. Not only award a scholarship, but to honor a child that has been affected in his or her daily life by cancer. For the last three years, 4 graduating seniors from Pointe Coupee High Schools were awarded scholarships by Nell's Angels to help assist them in future academic endeavors. The students wrote essays on the topic of how cancer has affected them. The scholarship will be awarded annually and any graduating high school senior from a high school located in Pointe Coupee Parish is eligible.

If you are interested in applying for the scholarship please view the instructions below . If you wish to make a donation earmarked for this purpose you can donate from the home page or send an email to
