''Before my Rockford Promise scholarship, I was constantly wondering if my hard work was good enough. After receiving this award, my life has been full of nothing but blessings. My family and I have gained a sense of stability for my academic future. Proud to say, I am a first generation college student. I plan to give back to the community through the care and health of their teeth by continuing my education in the study of Dental Hygiene.''
