Dear Board and Officers of the Richard and Linda Harrell Foster Care Scholarship and Donors,

 

Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to receive this prestigious scholarship. It means so much to my family and I that I was considered.

 

Being a foster child isn’t the easiest thing in the world and knowing there are people out there that have your best interest at heart is nothing less of incredible. Receiving this scholarship means I can attend school and study the major of my dreams. I have always been interested in music whether it is singing, playing, or just listening. I am planning on being a part of the campus ministry worship team. I am currently a member of my youth group worship team.

 

My intended major is biology and I plan to minor in psychology in future years. Again thank you for granting me the financial support to make this dream come true. I am extremely appreciative of this opportunity.

 

Yours truly,

Jada Alexander

Dear Board and Officers of the Richard and Linda Harrell Foster Care Scholarship and Donors,

 

Thank you so much for the honor of receiving the Richard & Linda Harrell Foster Care Scholarship! I was honored to receive it and am so proud to represent your organization. Three years ago, I was adopted out of Foster Care and given new life. By being awarded this scholarship I’ve been given the opportunity to have a laptop in college and have personal expenses provided for, which will allow me to become successful in my pursuit of a college degree.

 

In High School I was in 4 varsity sports. The highlights include:

  • All Iowa Honor Drill Team (2 years)

  • All State Cheerleader (3 years)

  • Best Offensive player and 2nd team All-Conference for Softball -and-

  • Named to the Elite All State Team for Track.

 

In college I plan to major in the human services field or elementary physical education. Thank you for investing in my success by awarding me your prestigious scholarship, I will not let you down!

 

Respectfully Yours,
