ABOUT THE LIVE YOUR DREAM SCHOLARSHIP
Dave Young, President of Paragon Wealth Management, created the Live Your Dream Scholarship in 2010. The scholarship is up to $2,000 and can be used for any university in Utah for an undergraduate or graduate degree. The scholarship was inspired by Dave's daughter, Katie.
Katie's husband, Byron, passed away unexpectedly on October 21, 2005. Byron was an employee at Paragon Wealth Management at the time. Byron was a dear friend, colleague, friend and family member. His tragic death came as an unexpected shock to everyone who knew him. He added joy and meaning to many people's lives.
When Byron passed away, Katie was left to provide for herself and three-month-old daughter. She decided to go to college to receive her bachelor's degree. Katie searched for scholarships, but had a difficult time finding one for women in her situation. Despite her challenges, Katie persevered and after much effort was able to complete her bachelor's degree in just two and a half years.
The Live Your Dream Scholarship was created to help single mothers in similar situations complete college and accomplish their dreams.

1- Be a single mother
2- Be a resident of Utah at the time of application
3- Be a graduate of an accredited high school or have equivalent
4- Have realistic and obtainable educational goals
