I am pleased to tell you that we have awarded another student the Social Work Student Assistance Scholarship. One of our Lambuth campus students in Jackson, TN was ineligible to graduate because she need just a few more credit hours. She was eligible to register for those hours but was out of financial aid. Thanks to your generous donation, we were able to help her graduate. Her thank you note is below:
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as the recipient of the School of Social Work Scholarship. Thank you for your generosity, which has allowed me to finish my last semester at the University of Memphis, located in Jackson, TN. I will be graduating on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
As I complete my education at the University of Memphis, I am very thankful for receiving your thoughtful gift. Because of your scholarship, I will be able to finish my hours to receive my Bachelor of Social Work.
Also, please remember that we are having a fundraiser for the Scholarship on Thursday, February 28th at the home of Jonathan Cole. The Facebook invitation may be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/287978128575047/ I hope you can join us for this event.
