“I would like to thank the Abbott family and the APS Foundation for their consideration of my receiving this scholarship. It means a lot and is a big step in the right direction for me as I yearn to continue my pursuit of higher education. I would also like to give a special thanks to Kara Abbott, although she may no longer be with us, she will forever be in our hearts. She has left a great legacy and continues to do so with this scholarship.”
