“Thanks to your generous gift, I will be able to focus on my studies at Virginia Tech as a rising sophomore pursuing a dual degree in Business Information Technology and Management. My freshman year of college came with its set of challenges; however, like my school’s motto, “Ut Prosim” – that I may serve, suggests, the best way to live your life is by applying your gifts to those in need, whether that be in the form of time, talent, or treasure. I will continue this trend of service over my next few years at this university, and carry that throughout the rest of my life. And because of your award of treasure, I will be able to focus my attention on furthering my education and making my mark.”
