''The opportunity for this scholarship is a dream come true for me. I had always wanted to go to Rock Valley College since it is an amazing school with a wonderful campus. Now I'm able to get a great education and stay close to home with my loving family. This is but one step of many on my path in the medical field, but it's one that allows me to invest more in the future and keep my motivation high. As a scholar I will use this gift to invest towards becoming not only a successful doctor, but to give support to the people within the community. I'm very grateful to be a part of an amazing scholarship program the helps kids achieve their dreams. It's an honor to use this scholarship to also accomplish mine.''
