Meet Ify


Ify is a social work major at Hardin-Simmons University. After graduating, she would like to open up her own preschool and eventually return to school to get her master’s degree. When Ify decided to go back to school, she found it challenging to find an affordable childcare option and is passionate about creating such an option for other families.

She says, “Rankin Foundation is investing in me now, and there will be a time when I will begin to invest in someone else, just as someone has invested in my education. I would like to be a blessing to my community. I have seen the value of helping people, so I will do the same after my graduation.”
