Student grateful for scholarship

I would love to thank Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club for the generous scholarship of $1,000 and your continued support throughout our community and to express my sincere gratitude to you for making the 2015 scholarship possible. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am deeply appreciative of your support.

First, I will crew for my dad on a commercial fishing boat for salmon in the inlet. In August, I will be leaving for Concordia University to earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing, specializing in pediatrics. 

By earning this prestigious degree, I plan to participate in the humanitarian field for organizations like Doctors without Borders, the Peace Corps or return home to volunteer for a local nonprofit in Homer. The financial assistance Rotary provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time for studying.

Thank you, again, for your generosity and support. I promise you I will work very hard and give something back to others, both as a nurse and possibly a scholarship to future students like myself.
