I take this achievement very seriously and appreciate the support given to me in order to make my goals a reality without worrying about the cost of tuition. This opportunity will not be wasted in procrastination, defeat or lack of effort. I desire to put this scholarship to good use in order to graduate with honors in the class of 2024.
