Scholarship winner thank you

Scholarship Recipient Letter

It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day grind of our jobs - the rec letters, school profiles, applications to process, etc. But at the heart of what we do are the students. Sometimes we need a reminder of how important our work is, and the student below was so kind to send us a letter reminding us of just that. Shelby received one of our student scholarships last year and sent the following letter. What you do makes a difference - for every Shelby at your school. 

Dear Scholarship Donor, 

I am honored to be a recipient of the Great Plains Association of College Admission Counseling Scholarship. Thank you for giving me the financial assistance to pursue a college degree. As a first generation college student, the financial assistance that you have generously provided will allow me to become the first in family to graduate college. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. With this scholarship, I will be able to make my dream a reality. In the fall of 2019, I will attend the University of Nebraska Omaha. I plan on receiving my bachelor's degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I will then begin my teaching career. Eventually, I will pursue my master's degree as well. I have been able to explore working with children at my job. I have been employed at a local daycare for two years now. This job has revealed my passion for working with children, especially those with special needs. Teaching is a vital part of our world. This field is more than teaching children math, science, and art. It is teaching them kindness, leadership, and so much more. Because of your generosity, I am one step closer to becoming a teacher. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity.
