"Throughout my college career I relied on financial aid, grants, and student loans to help finance my education. Receiving these scholarships helped me to purchase my books and provided other assistance as I pursued my education. I would like to thank the organization and sponsors for their generosity and for their continuing support of Waukon's seniors. You really are making a difference!
