My name is Elise Webber and I would like to extend a thank you to the Homer Foundation, specifically the Homer Community Science Foundation, and all who donated to make it possible. I was a recipient of a $500 scholarship that I will use to pursue higher education at Illinois State University where I will study biology and other life sciences. I worked very hard for this scholarship and I am extremely grateful that it was awarded to me.
I am happy that this community cares about academics and makes it possible for students to make their dreams a reality through community foundation involvement and donor participation. Thank you.
