TCF Recipient Harmony Nyitrai

Harmony Nyitrai’s story is a powerful illustration of how scholarships can change lives. Expressing her gratitude, Harmony says, “Thank you, CIRI [Foundation], for helping me with a scholarship while I was in school. It meant a lot to me and my family.” 

Her experience at Charter College, marked by academic excellence stands as an inspiration for aspiring vocational professionals.

Cheers to bidding farewell to Top Ramen and happy meals! On a more serious note, hitting a major life milestone—I completed my journey at Charter College. Out of the 22 students on this 10-month adventure, I stand alone in being on time and successfully earning my welding certificate. The smoothest part of my year? Nailing my classes and scoring spots on the Dean’s List twice.
