Josephine Pham, a fourth year Circle K member of CSU Fullerton, received the John & Elaine Nichelson Memorial Scholarship in 2021. Read her thank you letter to the Nichelson family below:
“Dear Nichelson Family,
I am truly honored to be the recipient of the 2021 John & Elaine Nichelson Memorial Scholarship. I want to thank you for your generosity in funding the scholarship. Due to this scholarship, I can continue my education at California State University, Fullerton.
I am currently in my junior year going into my senior year starting Fall 2021 as a business major with a concentration in general management. In addition to my academics, I am actively involved in school as the Community Service Inter-Club Council Chair and a member of the Student Business Advisory Board for the College of Business and Economics at CSU Fullerton. In Circle K International, I am also involved in a district committee for Fall Training Conference. After my graduation in May 2022, I plan to pursue a career as an event planner to contribute to the industry.
With this scholarship, it will help me focus on reaching my fullest potential as a student. I’m always looking for new things to do and challenging myself to take on new opportunities. My educational pursuits would not have been possible without this scholarship. Thank you so much for helping me develop my personal growth and build towards a career that can take on managerial responsibilities and event planning skills as a business major.”
