Letter from Scholarship Recipient
John Dembowski



CFN Members,


Part of me finds it hard to believe it's already October, and the other part wonders why it's only October! I can say without a doubt this has been the most difficult semester in my entire academic career. I am currently working on my Masters in Professional Accounting, and expect to graduate by December 2014. Between my 9 credit hours of graduate level course work and my CPA exam studying of about 28 hours per week, I can now say I know what it feels like to be truly busy.


Despite this, I can also say that my level of happiness has increased. Although seemingly contradictory, I have become more grateful for all the things in my life here at UNL. Whether it be the beautiful weather we've had as of late or the interactions with my friends, the sparse amount of free time I have has made me rethink my priorities and recognize all that I have to be thankful for. Among the people in this list are the contributors and supporters of CFN that have helped me substantially get to where I am and continue to help me as I finish my academic career. I want to share with you my gratitude and let you know that I am putting forth all my effort to succeed and represent the members of CFN well. Unfortunately, I have to get back to studying now, but I want to thank you again and would appreciate any prayers and support you can send my way. Go Big Red!


-John Dembowski
