''Thank you, being the first ever person in my family to attend college means so much to me and my family. I was unsure of what steps I wanted to take for the future and had no idea where I wanted to go or how I was going to get there. Hearing about Rockford Promise gave me some hope that I could possibly do what I want to do in life. Knowing that I can go to college without putting myself or parents into any stress is incredible, and I thank those who have donated and have given other young adults like myself a chance to accomplish their dreams.''
