Letter from Scholarship Recipient
Dear Coloradans for Nebraska,
Thank you so much for granting me one of the academic scholarships. As a first year recipient, I could not appreciate it more. I know it takes work to raise funds, but it is truly appreciated. These first few weeks back have flown by! Being back on campus reassures me that this is where I belong. There is nothing I love more than being a Husker and living in an atmosphere that is so welcoming. I've enjoyed all of the Husker football games so far this year, and look forward to the rest. To this day, the presentation of the tunnel walk still gives me goose bumps, as if I'm a freshman again at my first Husker game. I am happy to be one of the few representatives from northeastern Colorado at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Here's to putting us on the map! Again, thank you for all of your donations, as it helps students (like me) pursue our dreams and reach our career goals.
Go Big Red!
