Over the past two years I have been blessed to receive the general academic year scholarship from The CIRI Foundation (TCF) and I cannot begin to express my thankfulness for having been selected for the Excellence Annual Scholarship this year.
In no small part, the scholarship has granted me the opportunity to be an athletic scholar. In the realm of athletics, I have been privileged to participate on 2 National Championship teams for the clay target discipline. Beyond this, I have also been able to use the TCF grants to focus on my undergraduate studies. I am humbled to say that I have made the President’s list both years and thoroughly enjoy my degree program.
My goal is to one day get into medical school and pursue a career in medicine from that point. I know that my capability of accomplishing this dream would not be nearly as possible without the continued support of The CIRI Foundation. I will close by simply expressing my sheer gratitude to the organization for allowing me the opportunity to turn a dream into a reality.
