Florida Matters: Daughters for Life Scholars

Florida Matters: Daughters for Life Scholars

This fall, New College of Florida welcomed its inaugural class of Daughters for Life Scholars. The five women from Middle Eastern countries were given full scholarships from the Daughters for Life Foundation, which was created by a doctor in honor of three of his daughters who were killed in Gaza in 2009. John Davis of WGCU in Fort Myers recently talked with the students, and we will hear highlights of that discussion.
