TESTIMONIALS

2022 Scholarship Recipient

“This has made my entire YEAR!! I am so HONORED to be one of the recipients of this scholarship, and grateful that I will be able to attend school in the spring now thanks to this award!! Education is truly my biggest motivator in life, and a way in which I feel I can help others the most. I really did not know if I would be able to continue in my program, but now I am able to, and registration for the spring is in early November which is a HUGE relief! My parents are so proud and thankful for this award so that I can continue working towards my career.”​
