Letter from Scholarship Recipient
Hilary Lengel

 

Hello my fellow CFN-ers! 
 

Happy fall! I can't believe the middle of the semester is already upon us. First, I would just like to thank this community for their support and help on this journey through college. This is my fourth and unfortunately final year of receiving this award, and I am pleased to say that it has got me through so much. I am majoring in elementary education, so this semester I have had the privilege of student teaching in a fourth grade classroom in McCook, and I love it. This is everything I have been waiting for. The students are amazing, and the work is hard, and takes so much, but the results are absolutely worth it. Teaching has got to be one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet and I am thankful for the education I received while in Nebraska that has allowed me to come this far. I had one little girl tell me, "it's okay if you're mean to us because you're beautiful." Now I'm not sure how far being mean would go with the principal, but the being beautiful sure went a long way with me. I want to wake up in the morning and go to my classroom, and I know I couldn't have been better prepared than through my classes at UNK. I'm proud to say I'm living with a family in McCook that fully supports the Huskers, so game days are far from boring in this house, and I'm pretty sure I've accumulated even more red clothing than before. Gooooo Huskers! 


Thank you again for all of your support over the years. I really feel like I wouldn't be where I am without you guys! 

Happy football season, and God bless,
