Letter from Scholarship Recipient
Coloradans for Nebraska,
I just wanted to thank you for all of your support you've given me over the last three years. It seems like it just flew by! I am very appreciative of receiving the scholarship for the last three years. This has allowed me to continue pursuing my dreams and finishing my education. Coloradans for Nebraska has given me so much more than just a scholarship check. Throughout the many scholarship ceremonies that I have attended, I've never felt more welcomed or cared for than I did at the Coloradans for Nebraska event. Not only did people care about me as a person, but they wanted me to be successful as well. This made going far away to school much easier, knowing I had a huge support system back in Colorado.
I love that there is a group of people in Colorado that are just as passionate about the Huskers as I am. I truly do love the state of Colorado, but I love the Huskers as well. Sometimes it seems like an odd combination, but everyone within this group seems to have that mutual feeling. The community that Coloradans for Nebraska provides is outstanding, and I am very glad that I was able to be a part of it.
As I am reaching the end of my senior year, I am reflecting on what it has been like to be a Husker from Colorado. I still wear my Colorado native roots with pride, but I also am happy to share my Husker background as well. I am very grateful for the experiences that both states have offered me, and I wouldn't change anything. Graduation is coming up in May, and I'm excited to earn that Nebraska Diploma. I've accepted a teaching position in Lincoln, Nebraska at Northeast High School. I truly do miss Colorado, but I'm not ready to leave Lincoln yet. I am looking forward to starting my career in the same city where I received my college education. I can still be a huge husker fan, even if I might not stand out as much in the sea of red. I'll always remember the support that I have received from Coloradans for Nebraska and the comfort it gave me knowing I had so much support living so far from home. I am trying my best to share with others the great aspects that Coloradans for Nebraska provides to the community. Once again, thank you so much for all of your support.
