"To me, your gift represents much more than just a monetary gift. It represents a belief in the promise of equal opportunity. By providing resources to students who need and deserve it most, you are helping to ensure that one’s economic situation is not a barrier to their intellectual growth.

"There are no words to express my gratitude for the interest you’ve taken in my personal and intellectual wellbeing, and I take seriously the mandate given to me by such an award."
