My lifelong dream of attending Oregon Institute of Technology’s dental hygiene program is moving forward, thanks to generous educational scholarships like yours. Since being named one of the recipients of the Waltz Trust Health Care Scholarship, my dream is becoming a reality while I finish my AAOT at Chemeketa Community College. The $2000 award gives me an opportunity to earn skills that will serve the dental community following graduation. Thank you personally for your generosity: Without scholarship patrons willing to support dental education, students such as myself would be unable to pursue advanced healthcare degrees.

Once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and the medical school scholarship. I am committed to my education and to the healthcare field, and one step closer to becoming a dental hygienist, thanks to your continued generosity and the Waltz Trust Health Care Scholarship.
