Christine Daniels Scholarship

Christine Daniels was a beloved member of Founders MCCLA during the time that she transitioned from Los Angeles Times sports writer, Mike Penner, to Los Angeles Times sports writer, Christine Daniels. She shared her journey and her love with our congregation, but unfortunately she wasn’t able to survive all of the pressures that come along with being a Transgender woman in society.

While she lost her life, her love continues to live on in the Christine Daniels Scholarship Fund. The Social Butterflies (our Transgender ministry) developed this scholarship along with the board of directors and raises money throughout the year to distribute. Recipients are those students who are working towards helping the GLBT community.

Contact the office to donate towards this fund or to apply to it.
