"I want to thank you so much for my scholarship this semester! You have truly made an impact in my life that words cannot describe! I cannot wait for the day when I graduate and am able to start giving back to my community the way you have." -J (Freshman)

"This scholarship is ostensibly one of the best pieces of news I have received in quite a time. I have been having a rough time adjusting here but have kept up with being busy and conscious of my listening skills most of all. This scholarship is an amazing relief that has pumped me and my spirits up extensively, I will be using this for my tool inventory, I have been working with some great training tools but to buy nice sets of tools or power tools is an excellent gift. I am very shocked that I have been chosen to receive this award ... Thankyou so much for this amazing accolade and the heartfelt and sincere attendance to my story." -W (Sophomore)

"I just wanted to start this off by saying thank you, this scholarship award not only helps me out, but it took some stress of my parents as well financially. I guarantee that I will continue to excel as a student and continue to pursue my career. I am beyond grateful that I was selected, and I promise that this award will not go to waste. On behalf of me and my family, we want to thank you for blessing me with this award." -T (freshman)

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity in funding Foundation Scholarships.  Receiving this scholarship will help me continue my education at the Colorado Northwestern Community College.  I am second year nursing student.  I am planning to enter the nursing field as a caring, compassionate caregiver. Receiving this scholarship will help me tremendously with my educational pursuits.  Thank you for enabling me to reach my fullest personal and professional potential." -M (sophomore)
