“Words will never be able to truly express my gratitude toward the Community Foundation and Scholarship Committee for making me this year’s recipient of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. Being awarded this scholarship is not only a blessing but the biggest honor. I am so grateful to my community, my friends, and my family for helping me reach this point and supporting me along the way. From a young age, this scholarship was a long-term dream of mine, and now it is a reality that will lift the burden of financial stress during my undergraduate. I cannot wait to continue to pursue my dreams, with the assistance of this scholarship, as I will be on my path of majoring in biochemistry, going to medical school, and pursuing my passion of becoming a pediatrician.”
