A deserving student sat down to put into words her appreciation for her scholarship. The following is an excerpt from her poignant letter:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Deutsch,
My name is Christina Doerner and I am one of the very lucky recipients of your scholarship. I am incredibly grateful that you are willing to donate such a generous award to someone you have never met.
Your scholarship has not only helped me cover my tuition, but it also helped ensure that I had all the appropriate tools necessary for success in the OM&IS program. Since starting my OM&IS classes, I can say with full confidence, I have found my niche! After graduation, I intend to find a career in either the field of government or environmental industries. I hope to make a positive impact in the world we live in and become a valuable member of modern society.
Your gift has helped convince me that I can accomplish this goal. I have never received a scholarship before and honestly, there is no way I can truly thank you enough. Without your help, I would not be able to dedicate as much time to my studies. I wholeheartedly thank you for your incredible kindness. Thank you for believing in a stranger. I won't let you down.
