''After getting the news that I received the scholarship, I told my family right away and I felt so pleased and thankful. Receiving it makes me feel more certain about attending Rock Valley College because it means that my parents will not have to worry about the financial part of college for my first two years. Which
is a blessing!!! I am one step closer to pursuing my dreams of a future in the medical field. I will use my education to propel me to a place where I can influence and encourage others and give back to my community.''
