Thank you so much for making me a recipient of this generous 2019 Joseph James Morelli Scholarship award. This scholarship is an important step in my college career, as I move forward with both school and life. An award package like this allows me to focus more on my education and less on making ends
meet. To date, a significant aspect of my college life has been devoted to working as many as 35 hours per week to help support myself and my college expenses. With this award, I will be able to concentrate more on my education and, ultimately, my undergraduate degree. Thank you for believing in me and
supporting my education so that I will have a brighter future.
