“Thank you for selecting me to be the recipient of the 2020 Kenneth C. Forror, M.D. Scholarship! I loved serving in Key Club and it was an honor to be chosen for this scholarship. This scholarship means a lot to me because it aids greatly with my tuition cost. Coming from a middle‐class family who did not qualify for Federal aid but also does not earn enough to confidently cover my tuition, my parents have been struggling to fund my college tuition. On top of my college tuition, they have to continue to live with my two sisters in Hawaii, a state with a high cost of living.
The pandemic only made daily life more strained, as it brought the cost of living even higher. This scholarship can help to alleviate some of my family’s financial pressure and put them more at ease about sending me to college. I am so excited to have the chance to study at Creighton University and I hope that it gives me more opportunities in the future‐‐I’m also so grateful for this scholarship which will help me do so!”
