“Mr. Yuengert is an intelligent, insightful, generous young man that I believe would make positive use of any assistance available and would, in turn, benefit others.”

Nicole KuzmaIndependent Living Program Coordinator

“…you are what makes college attendance possible for many students in America. I greatly appreciate what you have done for me, and what you have likely done for many others. I come from a military family, which does not always mean a particularly well-off family, which makes it difficult to finance my college attendance, and with your help, I am able to continue my education. I eventually hope to be a doctor and help people around the world, and your generosity will be one of the reasons I have the pleasure of doing so, so again, thank you.”
