Speaker 1:
I chose the College of Education and Human Ecology because of all of the experiences they had
to offer for me as a student.

Not only the resources  but the very well-known faculty nationally  and internationally as well.

The moment I realized I could attend Ohio State  and I would have enough funds to do so was amazing.

I was jumping around the house.  My mom was jumping around the house.  I think I saw my grandma clear a few inches off the floor  at one point.

We were just all so excited.

The support from the scholarships have allowed me to be more of a student at Ohio State while still being a full-time student teacher.

I have the time to enjoy Ohio State while I'm still here.

Receiving a scholarship means a lot.

It gives me opportunities that  at one point I would just hope for and now those realities have been coming true.  

Receiving a scholarship has just meant the world to me because I get to experience such a high level of diversity and a large experience that I never  would've gotten otherwise.

People like you are the reason why a lot of students strive.  Thank you very much.

(uplifting music)
