Beth Samuelson

I give because I believe in the work of preparing teachers. I like to see funding that goes to helping students who need some additional support. I was a student who needed that help, and I’m always grateful to the people who made it possible.

The impact of your gift

Daniel Jonaitis

I am not sure a simple “thank you” is enough; being allowed a college education is literally life-changing. I was not bogged down by the worry of needing to keep a steady job, so it allowed me to tutor students in the local area in my free time.

Daniel JonaitisSenior, scholarship recipient

Ja'Toria Palmer

I greatly appreciate you all for donating to make a difference along my educational journey. These funds have relieved a financial burden which is an immense stressor and, in turn, I will have more time to focus on academics and research.
