D.O.R.S. Recipients Show Gratitude

Here are some words of gratitude from Diocese of Reno Scholarship Recipients! Congratulations to these these Miners, and thank you to the Diocese of Reno for providing this incredible opportunity.

"Thank you for the D.O.R.S. It helped me become a better, more mature young Catholic man. I can lead my life wherever with a good head on my shoulders, so thank you!"

"Catholic education is very important to our family. We want the kids to grow up not only academically successful, but also physically, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually balanced. In a Catholic school, they are not only educated but also challenged to make decisions and actions that are centered in Christ. We promise to fulfill our service hours not because it is a requirement, but because it is our way of giving back for this blessing."

"I promise that I will do my best to get good grades. I will do everything to make this opportunity not go to waste and I will make you very proud of me!"

"Thank you for giving our daughter the opportunity to have the best education... a Catholic education!"

"I am finally a senior at Bishop Manogue, and I am disheartened to say that this will be my last letter to you all. I have realized that your financial help has been a hidden light in my life. Until this year, I never knew how heavy the weight of bills could be, and without this scholarship, I am not sure how we would have survived. Despite all of the things happening in the world, I want to continue being active as a student. I found my home at this school, and even though this is my last year, I still want to make my mark. Thank you for being part of my history..."

"I know that this D.O.R. Scholarship will truly change my life! I promise that I will do my very best and not make you regret your decision of choosing me for this scholarship."
