“She is charming with a personality that is infectious once you get to know her. She has a good heart and cares about her family and friends. I know wholeheartedly that she is going to put in the time, effort, and patience to study and complete her degree.”

“All of us daughters are taught from a very early age that there are no handouts in life and that one has to work hard to be rewarded. We grew up knowing college was not a free ride and it would be up to us to study and become a valuable member of our school and community. Receiving acknowledgment for the last four years of hard work is wonderful. Your scholarship will allow me to be able to continue my academic career for the next four years and focus more on giving back to the community on a larger scale while becoming a well-rounded individual who has the education and experience to succeed in adulthood.”
