Recipient of the Glenn Lefler Physics Scholarship
“I am honored to have been chosen for this award. My experience so far in Eastern Illinois University’s physics department has been wonderful. This scholarship will greatly contribute to my goal of graduating with as little debt as possible.
Receiving this scholarship lets me know that others have noticed my hard work and believe that my work ethic and past achievements would make me a good engineer. This reassurance gives me a renewed sense of focus and encourages me to keep doing my best.
Every day I am reminded of how blessed I am ... and I hope that one day I will have an opportunity to be an inspiration to other kids like me who take an interest in physics and engineering. Your generosity and support have helped me pursue a lifelong dream. Thank you so much for helping me get there!
