“She stands out among her peers… I am moved by her dependability, strong work ethic, positivity, and ability to function in a high pressure team environment. This applicant has demonstrated her ability to show up early and complete tasks flawlessly. This applicant is reliable and strives to do her best each day. She…thrives in a “team environment”…She is the kind of student that brightens a room. She is respected by her peers and by the staff. I give my highest recommendation to this candidate.”

~ Philip Coston – Associate Director of Bands

“The fact that someone outside of myself and my loved ones would also acknowledge that hard work and dedication means more than I will ever be able to properly express. Without the assistance from the Anchor Foundation and its donors, continuing my higher education would have the added challenge of great financial burden. Although college remains an expensive journey, between working and generous financial support from foundation donors like yourselves, it is attainable. No amount of thanks will be great enough, just know my gratitude knows no bounds and that I will continue to work hard toward my academic and career goals.”
