Dear Col Schenk:

I would like to thank you for the scholarship money you have given me. I am a married 35-year-old woman with a 7-year-old son. I have been married for 13 years. A great many of those years my husband has been ill. He received a kidney/pancreas transplant in 1999. During his illness he had some wonderful nurses take care of him. They also offered an extreme amount of emotional support to me. When we moved to Florida in 2003 our son was 2 1/2 and I chose to be a stay at home mom and return to school to be a RN. I want to be able to give back to others and hopefully help someone as much as those nurses helped us. I am also hoping that continuing my education at this time in my life will encourage my son to strive to achieve a higher level of education right after high school.

I am very grateful for my scholarship and thank you again.
