    Making a Difference

    I went to class every day to work on my assignments, to share my opinions, but above all else – to learn. I was constantly working towards my goals in the program, and it was nice to get some recognition for my efforts.

    “Getting the Academic Leadership Award took away a lot of stress that I was having about my practicum at the end of the academic year.

    I feel very appreciative to have received these awards. I am genuinely grateful to have been a recipient and to have been selected amongst many candidates. I am also deeply respectful to the donors who provide these student awards.

    “If it weren’t for donors, many deserving individuals would be held back by finances or wouldn’t be recognized for their hard work and determination.

    Receiving a scholarship was the difference between going to school and not. I was so grateful to get the extra financial help…it really made the final decision as to whether I would attend college or not.
