“I heard the news and my jaw dropped for about an hour. Then, I called my mom to tell her and she thought it was a prank. Needless to say this is the most generous, outstanding, and incredible gift I have ever received. I am in this business because I love meeting and communicating with new people. Receiving this scholarship just reminds me of people’s never ending generosity. Words don’t truly begin to describe the appreciation I feel.”
