Codi Francis is one of the 91 recipients of the 2011 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship that recognizes Montana High School seniors for volunteering in their communities. In the last year, Codi volunteered almost 200 hours with Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports, and her school mentoring program, Tiger Buddies.

“It’s one of the best feelings in the world when I am able to help someone, not because I have to, but because I want to,” said Codi when asked why she volunteers. “The feeling of knowing that I made a difference in someone’s life is one of the largest factors that motivates me to do volunteer work.”

Codi Francis lives in Manhattan, Montana and is in the 2011 graduating class of Manhattan High School. She will attend Montana State University in the fall and hopes to major in Nursing. In the last year, Codi spent over a 100 hours volunteering at the Bozeman Deaconess Hospital alone, which inspired her to pursue a career in nursing.

“Codi is a rare individual who responds positively to challenges and wants to help,” said Bridget Woolbaugh, School Counselor in Manhattan. “She thoroughly enjoys using her energy both to motivate those she works with and to help those she serves. In other words, she’s a leader with a servant’s heart.”

The Youth Serve Montana Scholarship was created to promote volunteerism among youth, to encourage young leaders to further their learning, and to provide tuition assistance for Montanan students who wish to attend college in state. These scholarships were made available through a partnership with the Governor’s Office of Community Service and Montana Campus Compact, the largest higher education network in Montana.
