''Being a Rockford promise recipient is to have the opportunity to attend college, which I would not have had otherwise. This opportunity has allowed me to complete an education to help me grow and to mature as an individual. This scholarship will enable me to use my education to give back to the Rockford community and show the success of this program to future applicants. I am beyond grateful, and I am absolutely over the moon to accept this opportunity to enrich both my life and the community that I reside.''
