We have the pleasure of helping a President's Scholar this semester! Two years ago, she was enrolled in college on the President's Scholarship. Her health required her to drop out. Unfortunately, the college required her to pay remit the scholarship value prior to returning to college. In this economy employment was only seasonal and home life forced her to sleep on a friend's couch. There was no way to save the money to be eligible ot return to college and live each day.
A donor decided to remit the scholarship value so she could return to college. Seasonal employment is beginning to look like permanent employment and spring classes are in full swing. Financial aid is funding her education.
Life is better. She has committed to herself to make an "A" in every class as she pursues her education. This one will go far. I see a Nobel Prize in her future!
