If only you knew how much I actually appreciate this award.  Whenever I write these letters, I am never satisfied with the finished product.  No matter how much I try, it is never enough.  I wish you could join me in my mind, just for a day, so you could experience how grateful I am to be able to go to college and further my education.  I really am making hte most of my college experience, taking every opportunity I can to grow and to become a well rounded person.  And maybe one day I will be able to help someone and give them the ame opportunity you have given me.  Thank you so much.
