''Being selected to be a Rockford Promise recipient is a huge accomplishment and I am extremely grateful for it. Getting this scholarship has pretty much ensured my education and improved the career opportunities I will receive. By receiving the Rockford Promise, my goals will be much easier to reach and I will become more motivated to meet them. For the donors who made this possible, thank you so much for everything you do because without it, I wouldn’t have this opportunity.''
