Dear Mr. Cliffords,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the scholarship that I received. It really came in handy with my tuition this semester. I appreciate what you do and I am proud to have the scholarship to show for it. I plan to use this scholarship to forward my education in biology and to use my degree to teach others about the importance of biology in all different types of fields. This scholarship is doing more than helping me with school, it’s helping me achieve my dreams.
Thank you again,
Danielle Riggs
