Impact:

Most of our students reach out to us during the school year to show their appreciation and thankfulness for the scholarship they have received. Our scholarship recipients come from all walks of life, and each of them have their own set of hardships to overcome as young adults. These students have explained that the awards have not only helped them with the financial stress of post-secondary education, but also has given them the confidence to keep pushing through the hard weeks knowing that they have the support of our foundation. There are people that believe they can do this and want to see them succeed.
