Letter From Scholarship Recipient
To Coloradans for Nebraska and the gracious donors,

Thank you all so very much for supporting mine and so many other's dreams of going to Nebraska. It is a privilege and honor to be supported by a group of alumni and fellow husker fans. 5 years ago when I was introduced to CO4NU, I didn't quite understand what the organization did besides host watch parties, which is cool of course, but now I can see how much this organization does for Colorado students that go to Nebraska. I am so grateful for the financial support and for the people behind the donations.

Many of you went to the University and can only hope students now will have the great experiences that you had. Just finishing my freshman year, I can look back and happily tell you that it was a year filled with many new and fun experiences, a year of meeting so many great people, a year of falling in love with the journalism school, a year of studying more than I thought was possible, a year of heartbreaking football but extremely fun games nonetheless, and most importantly, a year of extreme personal growth.

This scholarship took a burden off of our family's pockets this year after sending checks for two students at UNL, and for that I am extremely grateful. I know there were many applicants for these scholarships and I sincerely thank you for choosing me to receive one of them. This is an organization that I'll proudly support once I reach alumni status and one that I will proudly represent until then. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

God Bless and Goooo Biiig Red,

Maddy Patten
