"Words cannot express how truly grateful I am for your generosity. I hope that I can give to others what you have given to me, an opportunity to grow as a person and serve all those in need. After volunteering [for the next two years], I plan on attending graduate school and look forward to giving back to Saint Mary's to make the College the best it can be."
"A small liberal arts school with highly supportive faculty is exactly what I wanted for college; your financial assistance has done wonders for the
realization of my collegiate and vocational dreams."
"We as human individuals of a great society are able to make a difference help others and contribute to our undying spirit to the world."
Maggie is thriving at Saint Mary’s, thanks to the John and Enid Macken Forensics Annual Scholarship. “None of this would be possible without this scholarship,” she says. “ I have learned how to think critically, think on my feet, speak publicly and express my views in class. My future plans include volunteer work in the Peace Corps and then law school. I look forward to donating to Saint Mary’s in the future. I would like to do for others what the Mackens have done for me.”
"Without aid I would not have been able to attend Saint Mary's or be in the nursing program. I am really thankful for this opportunity and give back to my school by working in the Call Center. I get a chance to raise money for things such as The SMC Fund which helps provide financial aid to students like me."
Thanks to the Class of 1950 Millennium Endowed Scholarship, Shelby is pursuing her dream of becoming a forensic psychologist. "I am so thankful for this scholarship. I look forward to contributing to Saint Mary's in the future because I know how much it helps."
