Scholarship amazing
Dear Editor,

Recently I was given a scholarship from the Homer Community Service Scholarship Fund. The amazing thing is that this scholarship exists because of the generous contributions from local people. I am so grateful to all of you who have your support and money to the sciences. I can now use this scholarship to pursue a career in biology and accomplish the goals that I have set for myself. I have always been amazed at the numbers of people who support our local youth. Their gift of time or money has impacted the lives of many kids, including myself. I would like to thank them. Others who contribute are also teachers and mentors, but what they all have in common is their willingness to help youth in this community. Stan Eller was the key to putting together this scholarship fund and he has always pushed me to reach for my goals. Thank you Mr. Eller for all your support!
