“I am honored to be selected to receive the Kristin D. Hiza Memorial Scholarship and be allowed to further my education. Receiving this money means everything not only to me but my mother. Growing up with her influence encouraged me to work hard in school and continue into university. Obtaining a degree was a dream of hers, and I plan to get the degree she was never able to. She is my number one supporter and with your generosity, I can make her proud. Receiving this financial support will help me enter college more focused on my studies. Thank you for believing in me and allowing me to reach my goal of obtaining a college degree.”
