Many times in life, we are given visions; however, we lack the provision to accomplish these things. This scholarship will grant me the funds, experience, connections, values and relationships that are necessary to bring forth the many visions that I have. Thank you for putting us first and being that “lifeline” for many students that may lack leadership, mentorship, and positive role models in their life!
