Matt Roloff's CoDA organization presented a scholarship

The organization that viewers saw Matt Roloff and Martin Klebba form on Little People, Big World a few years back-- CoDA - Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy- recently awarded a scholarship which was presented at the National Conference in New York.

You can make donation to CoDA if you choose, at their website:

"Jane Elizabeth McKenzie, 18, was one of two recipients of a scholarship awarded by the Coalition for Dwarf Advocacy (CoDA) at the annual Little People of America national conference in New York City earlier this month.

CoDA was formed by Matt Roloff, known for his role on TLC's Little People, Big World, and others "to advocate for individuals with short stature (dwarfs) in the areas of medicine, vocation, education, adoption, and public accommodation."

CoDA also works with other nonprofit organizations "for the betterment of the lives of dwarfs, and to increase public awareness of the needs and abilities of such individuals."

McKenzie is the Little People of America National Teen Coordinator and the daughter of Jack and Joy Campbell McKenzie of College Station. A 2009 graduate of A&M Consolidated High School, she will be a pre-nursing major at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches."
