It has given me an even greater sense of pride and joy knowing that my community supports my academic efforts. Winning this scholarship has changed my life for the better…it is such a great honor, and I am extremely happy I was chosen. Congratulations to all the scholarship winners. I wish you all the best and continued success in life. I am very grateful for this opportunity that was presented from the United Way of South Hampton Roads.”
