Receiving the Russel and Jaimee Kiner Scholarship from CNH allowed me to pursue my college education at UCLA with the confidence and assurance that I would not be held back by financial concerns. The scholarship allowed me to spend time focusing on developing my passions and my studies, becoming the best student and leader I can be under Kiwanis values while pursuing my dreams. The scholarship also motivates me to continue my ties with the Kiwanis family through Circle K and continue serving my community in every way possible.
To receive the scholarship represented all of the hard work, energy, dedication and love I poured into the Key Club organization throughout high school, building up my club, serving my district and division, and representing Kiwanis, and it reflects all of the support I received in return. Receiving the scholarship during my last District Convention was symbolic of the impact service, spirit, and the CNH Kiwanis family had on my high school career, and how Kiwanis would continue to support my future going forward.
Thank you CNH Kiwanis!
