Past recipients have noted the significant impact the scholarship has made on their academic career: 

"I had an amazing first semester of college, I really enjoyed all of my classes. I am actually slightly disappointed to be done with them. I got to know my professors fairly well through visiting them at office hours which really helped me . . . I have had so many opportunities to try new things and have been very involved here . . . I have met so many people and have made many new friends. My first semester has been such an incredible experience and I am excited to begin my new classes after a relaxing break with family and friends.  Thanks for your support and Go Blue!" Lexi Wierenga, Class of 2015
