My name is Samantha Draves, and I am a recent graduate in the class of 2016. I would like to thank the community and to all who donate and support local scholarships. My personal thanks extends to the Homer Foundation in relation to the Homer Community Science Scholarship and the Nikki Geragotelis (Fry) Memorial Scholarship, both of which I was honored with receiving. I am honored to have received the Nikki Geragotelis (Fry) Memorial Scholarship because of the tremendous impact she left on this community as a person, athlete and member of the community. These scholarships totaling $1,500 I will use for books and materials as I pursue a pre-med degree at the College of Wooster in Ohio, where I also plan to play division III soccer. Thank you to all who donated, investing in my future education.
