I am so grateful to be a recipient of the Gladys Emerson Cook Scholarship, Barbara M. Hanson Brown Community Service Award, and Merit-Based Study Abroad Scholarship.
Of the four children in my family, three of us are currently seeking a college degree. Receiving these scholarships has allowed me to reduce the financial burden placed on my parents. It has also allowed me the financial freedom to achieve my dream of studying abroad for a semester in Rome, Italy, and soon to achieve my dream of obtaining a degree in Community & Nonprofit Leadership.
I look forward to the opportunities that these experiences will afford me in the future, and am sincerely appreciative of those people who have helped make my dreams possible.
