"...I received this scholarship over the summer. I just wanted to let the people who helped me pay for college this year know that I am doing well my first semester here at The University of Connecticut as a ACES Pre Education major. Thank you for the opportunity to be able to be one of the first in my family to attend college and help it to be a little more affordable..."
To the Rhoda Spear Educational Schol. Committee,
I would like for you to know how grateful I am to be selected for one of your scholarships. I will be attending Western Connecticut State University this fall. As a student athlete, my dream is to play football professionally but I am just as excited to recieve my diploma in Education. I am leaning towards a degree in Physical Education or History. I enjoy creative writing as well.
My parents have struggled financially for a while now. My father is visually impaired and unable to walk. My mother was in a vehicle accident that caused her to lose her job. This scholarship means more than you can ever imagine. I will work hard as a Rhoda Spear Scholarship recipient and am so proud to do so. I will keep in touch. Thank you so very much for this honor.
Sincerely, Anthony & Family
Dear New Haven Scholarship Committee,
I would like to thank each & every one of you for the generous award. I am honored to be a Proud recipient of this Program. All of you have helped pave my way for success now & most importantly in the future. I have been a recipient for the past 4 years, my gratitude goes without saying.
Each year I would always look forward to sharing my progress and new adventures with the committee. I enjoyed the paper because I felt that you all got to know me on an academic and personal level. My journey at SCSU has been great and I can't wait to apply for the MBA Program at either SCSU or UConn. I'm still in disbelief that I studied abroad in Italy for a week with my class. The Scholarship helped make that dream possible, I will be forever grateful.
This scholarship has not only affected me but so many students from New Haven, including my own best friends...I could only hope that one day I could give students a great opportunity/financial support just as you all have done for me. Maybe I'll even be able to join the NHSF board. :) Thank you so much? -Adriana
