Three NeW members, Blayne Bennett, Kathleen Bracken and Sarah Perkins were recipients of the Phillips Foundation’s “Ronald Reagan College Leaders Scholarship.’ This merit based scholarship is awarded to college students who “demonstrate exceptional achievements as campus
leader-activists against “political correctness” and ideological
conformity, and for freedom, American values, and Constitutional
principles on their campuses.”
All three are current or former NeW presidents of their respective chapters and have been strong conservative voices on their college campuses.
