I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity in funding the EAL Scholarship at Black Hawk College. I am very honored to be the recipient of this award. I appreciate your recognition of my academic efforts and financial need.
As a dislocated worker I was lucky to acquire a job at United Health Care. This job has given me back the confidence I lost after being laid off. I was feeling like I was unable to help my daughters who both have potentially debilitating health problems as well as my son. All three of my children are in college which is a huge financial strain. In order for me to advance at my job, I needed more education in my field. Your generosity in funding this scholarship has allowed me to do just that. So again, thank you. Receiving this scholarship motivates me to continue my education which will allow me to continue to advance my career. Being recognized for all my hard work and determination reminds me that it will be worth it in the end. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals.
