The Alumni Association awarded scholarships to seven (7) graduating seniors from the class of 2021 totaling $8,000. Here are a few of the quotes from the thank you letters received from those recipients.
“When it was announced I would be receiving the Scholarship, I began to cry. If feel very honored to have received such an esteemed reward”
“I worked really hard through my years of high school to be the best student that I could be and with your help, I will continue to do the same at The University of Akron. Thank you so much. I appreciate your faith in me.”
“I always used to worry about my financial situation because I am a first-generation student and have the support behind me when it comes to school. This scholarship was one of the first scholarships and gave me the confidence to obtain more”
“Thank you so much for the scholarship. You have no idea how much it means to me that the Alumni gives back to the school so often. This opportunity genuinely means the world to me and I hope that someday in the future that I will be able to, just like you, give back to the school that gave me so much joy and knowledge for several years.”
