Words of thanks from the class of 2019

Dear Dollars for Scholars,

I am truly honored to have been chosen for the Whitman High School Class of '47 scholarship. As I head off to Colby College in August, I will remember your generosity and will remain very thankful for the role you have played in helping me fulfill my dream. Through this process I have learned first hand the importance of investing in our youth and continuing to support those who choose to further their education.

With Great appreciation, 


I wanted to say thank you for choosing me as one of the recipients of a Dollars for Scholars award! I truly appreciate it, as it will help me as I start my next chapter. I am attending Assumption College in Worcester, MA. There, I will carry a double major in Criminology & Sociology. My hopes are to be able to help victims of crime. It will not be easy but I hope it's a small way of me making a mark on trying to make this world a better place.

Thank you very much,

Dear Dollars for Scholars Committee,

I would like to take some time to say thank you. I deeply appreciate and am honored to have received this scholarship. It will help me with my studies, and I can be at ease knowing that I will have some extra help paying for essential books, materials, tuition, etc. I will be attending Fairfield University's Egan School of Nursing this upcoming fall and cannot wait to start the semester! I will hopefully be pursuing club lacrosse and will join some environmental and community service clubs. I absolutely cannot wait, and because of this scholarship, I am better prepared to begin this new chapter in my life. So once again I thank you!

All my best,
