``The Rockford Promise Scholarship means a lot to me and my family because we are a family of ten people and wouldn't have been able to pay my tuition. I got the chance to go to college right away after high school, which was one of my dreams.
Before I got the Rockford Promise Scholarship, I was planning to work first and save up for my college tuition. I think that would have taken me a long time to accomplish, but thank God the Rockford Promise Scholarship made my dream
come true of going to college right away after high school.``
