I am sincerely honored to be one of the recipients of the CCSA Traditional Scholarship. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to further my education without a financial burden.
Not only was receiving the scholarship important but I was also able to do a lot of networking at the scholarship banquet. There were things I learned at the banquet that money just can’t buy.
Thank you again for this amazing opportunity to meet new people, learn new things, and further my education.
