Housing Choice participant wins Shalom scholarship for achievements Chapter of Hadassah holds November events
Wynonna Fulgham, a participant in Chandler’s Housing Choice Voucher program (Section 8), was awarded a $1,000 scholarship by the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Ofﬁcials in recognition of her scholastic achievements, community service and efforts to improve her life and that of her family’s. The wife and mother of three children ages 8, 4 and 1, with housing assistance and the support of her family, has attended ASU as a full-time student while working as a student-teacher at Tempe High School. Fulgham was on the ASU Dean’s List in 2012 and 2013 and graduates in December with a degree in secondary education with an emphasis in mathematics. Her long-term goal is to return to her hometown on the Navajo Reservation and teach math. While attending ASU, she worked part time for a City of Tempe afterschool care program until her husband, Nick, who works for the Kyrene School District, made it possible for her to focus exclusively on her education. With Section 8 beneﬁts, the Fulgham family has been able to rent a home in Chandler, paying 30 percent of their monthly-adjusted income toward the rent, while the City, through a federal block grant, pays the balance. The family participates in the City’s Family Self-

Sufﬁciency Program, which assists families in making the transition from public assistance to productive employment and economic self-sufﬁciency. Achieving self-sufﬁciency is something she says she learned at an early age growing up on the Navajo reservation, where there was no running water or electricity until she was 7. Her advice to others facing challenges in life is to try and remain positive and optimistic.
