''To me, being selected as a Rockford Promise recipient means that I have the dedication and persistence to succeed not just in school but also in the workforce after college. Knowing that I will receive the Rockford Promise allows me to continue my studies without worrying about how I will pay for college. With this scholarship, I'll be able to focus on my professional career and strive to make more opportunities for myself with the only intent to push myself to be even better. I would like to give a huge thank you to the donors for believing in my academic success and making this possible!''
