Truly humbled and inspired… Those are the words I would choose when thinking about the scholarship entries this year.
First, the facts for the 2016 scholarship:
Applicants for scholarship: 1867
Different Schools: 424
I must tell you that after reading each of the submitted applications, I was completely blown away by the stories, the goals, the struggles… There are a LOT of people out there in the world trying to better themselves through education. Hat’s off to each and every one of you that submitted an application for the scholarship!!
Without further ado, the 2016 winner is….
Cylain Dandridge from Harris-Stowe State University
Congratulations Cylain and we wish you great success in your college endeavors!!
