I am writing to thank you for your generosity towards furthering my college education courtesy of the Central Curry District / Freeman Scholarship.  I was very appreciative and happy to learn that I am a recipient of your scholarship. Thank you for helping support my continuation of college through your scholarship as well as the many other students from our coastal community.

Studying to major in Business at George Fox University has been exciting, as I finished my second year with honors.  I am currently taking two summer online classes at night while working for my second summer at the US Forest Service firefighting engine crew.  During this last year I continued expanding my skill set with classes in global business, law, management, marketing, finance and economics.  At the end of my sophomore year, I decided to pursue a double major in Business Administration and Communications adding a minor in Accounting.  This will allow me to participate in a hands-on business internship gaining practical experience.  Thank you for your continued support as I am half way to achieving my goal of obtaining my higher education and your funding helps make this all possible.  This junior year brings an exciting cultural diversity training ending with a school sponsored international trip to India.  This is the first time traveling abroad and I look forward to meeting new people and experiencing new cultures widening giving me a more global perspective.

By awarding me the Freeman Scholarship you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning.  Your generosity has also inspired me to help others and give back to the community.   I hope that one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
