"This scholarship means so much to me & helps allow me to continue on the path to refine & hone my education. I am so grateful & thankful for this gift, I cried tears of joy when I received the news I had been chosen. I am 43 years old & have returned to school to pursue an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Advertising & Graphic Design as well as an Associate of Science Degree with a focus on the environment and sustainability. Thank you so much again for your generosity & for this opportunity to achieve my goals."
