“We have a financial service business that requires a lot of compliance and regulation. When he came to us for an internship/job we were not sure if we wanted to proceed because of his age. After his persistence and interviews we made an offer. We took a risk based on his age, but have been very happy with his maturity and work ethic. He has been a great addition to our team, and even though he is only 18, he has performed better than some experienced team members that we have hired in the past. We have asked him to stay on with our firm while he attends college full time. He is a great asset to our practice, and is willing to learn whatever we ask.”

~ Owen Van Syckle – President

“I would like to begin by sincerely thanking each of you for the opportunity to receive this scholarship. Without your generous donations, attending my dream school would not be possible.”
