I am writing to thank you for the generous award of the Waltz Health Care Scholarship, Arlena Hall Scholarship, and the Dutton-Sonnevil Scholarship. I was extremely appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient for these three scholarships.

I am staring the journey of becoming a registered nurse this fall through Oregon Health and Science University on the Monmouth campus. This is a 3-year program and I am so excited to expand my professional skills in the medical field. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to my goal of becoming a registered nurse.

By awarding me these scholarships, you have lightened my financial burden which has allowed me to focus more on my studies. My educational goals would not be possible without generous support from your scholarship. Thank you for enabling me to go to college – a dream come true for me and my family!
