I am writing to thank you for generously awarding me the Waltz Trust Health Care and Dutton­Sonnevil Scholarships. I was extremely appreciative to learn that I was selected as a recipient. I am a Community Health major with a minor in Human Biology. I plan to pursue a career as a Registered Nurse. I am getting ready to start my final year here at Western Oregon University where I will be applying to OHSU’s accelerated Nursing program. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to that goal. 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! With gratitude,
