I am a graduating senior and as I walked out of the high school for one of the last times, I realized that I am who I am because of the benevolent people of Homer. I am very thankful for all of the scholarships I received that will help me attend college in the fall and I want to thank those programs that take the time to offer those scholarships.
I could not have received any of those if it were not for the people in the community, agencies and educators, who shared their expertise, encouraged my interests and nurtured my love of learning. I have made a promise to myself that I will someday inspire youth as all of you so inspired me.
Thank you, Homer.
