“The T. Matt Hirschfeld Scholarship is very important to me and to my future. It provides me with the funding needed for my college career. I come from a single mother household, and this kind of money isn’t something that comes easily, and is a tremendous help! I plan to go to college to earn my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, and pursue my goal of becoming a CSI (Crime Scene Investigator). This scholarship is going to help open many doors of opportunity for me. Receiving this scholarship also helps me realize the potential I have in succeeding. This furthers my dedication and commitment I have for my future. The importance of this scholarship is the support I gain. This enhances many new things for me, and I will continuously work hard to succeed.”
