Thank you for assisting me in my never ending quest for knowledge.  I received $1,000 through the Joe Bailey/Curry Arts Scholarship, and it's amazing and exciting that you as a Board chose me for this scholarship.

Yesterday, June 26, I went up to Eugene OR to attend an interview for the Ford Family Foundation.  The interview went well, I thought and I went outside to get some air.  Immediately after, Denise Callahan, an interviewer, came down and informed me that I had just received a scholarship that covered 90% of tuition, renewable.

Your assistance of $1,000 will end of of greater value than you will ever know.  Again, thank you for this opportunity.
