All my life I wanted to earn a degree and start my career. Yet the one thing that consistently held me back was money. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to follow my dreams and work towards bettering my life and the lives of those around me. Thank you so much, I am honored to receive this scholarship.

As a working student, I strive for excellence and to excel in my educational journey. This scholarship has given me a renewed spirit and encouraged me to become a role model not only for Central Penn College, but also for my community. I feel the most sincere gratitude for your thoughtful scholarship.

Central Penn College Education Foundation Scholarship Recipient (Summerdale, Pennsylvania)

Attending Interlochen Arts Academy, I have been able to improve tremendously. Not a day goes by without me thinking about how lucky I am to be here at one of the best schools in the world and all that I am able to learn. This wouldn't have been possible without your help, so thank you so much for giving me this opportunity.
