I have been blessed with not only the insurance of being rewarded with the scholarship at the end of my senior year, but with so much more. In the last six years, I have gained one of the closet companions I have yet to build. My mentor, Mrs. Nancy Lange, has become a role model and a person I know I can rely on to give me guidance and encouragement. The program has also granted me the various character building events such as the etiquette lunch and the multiple program gatherings, which lead me to interact with new students. This scholarship permits me to move forward after high school graduation and continue my goal of a higher education and the assurance of knowing that all my hard work has paid off. My parents are thankful that their dream of a college education will come true, which they themselves were never able to experience.
