1/19/15 - A thank you from one of our Scholarship recipients:
"I am writing to express once again how grateful I am for the scholarship award. With the high cost of textbooks and nursing supplies, the award has been a really great help! I would also like to share with you that days before the gala night, I was worried about not having a pair of white shoes for school and clinical. And I was so delighted to receive the gift card from you. Something that I did not expect, but definitely an answered prayer. The following day, I bought the much needed shoes. That pair of shoes will bring me to my dreams. And everytime I wear that pair, I will remember your kindness and generosity." - Ana Cook
