My scholarship has lightened my financial burden and allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of school—learning. I plan to attend the University of Minnesota after graduation. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to achieving that goal.

Being a single mother with three boys under the age of four, I have nowhere to turn, but this scholarship proves that someone is thinking about us. I am going to have a better future for myself and my children. God Bless you for this wonderful gift.

CLARISSE DEGBE, HEALTHCARE/NURSING STUDENT

My love for gardening started at a young age, and I worked alongside my parents in our gardens to grow flowers, fruits and vegetables. Every class I take opens my eyes to new career possibilities and reaffirms my decision to pursue a careeer in the green industry. This scholarship means I can spend more time learning and less time worrying about how I'm going to pay for it.

I am a veteran of the American Armed Forces and served with honor, awards and recognition. Thanks to your generous support I am the first in my family's generation to attend college. Having achieved 42 semester hours and a 3.75 GPA, I know that I am an example to my brothers and sisters that pursuing higher education and graduation is achievable.

Working as a STEM volunteer, I try to inspire more children to take up a profession in the engineering field.
