Medaille received this message from a student who recently received a scholarship and we thought it would be a good idea to share with faculty and staff.  The letter below shows what a difference  Medaille can make in a young adults life.

Dear  Travers Collins Communication Endow Donors:

As a full-time student at Medaille College that pays for school its huge blessing to receive this scholarship. When I received the letter that I won the scholarship, I started to cry. This scholarship brought me so much joy.

I am a Communication major with an emphasis in Public Relations and Television. I plan to pursue a career in Communication Field upon graduating from Medaille College this May. I am graduating a year early and with all internships that Medaille has assisted me with I am positive that I will impact Communication world. After graduation, I will attend University at Buffalo Law School to earn my law degree. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to that goal. This summer I have designed a media program for kids, co-hosted radio shows in WNY, and help produce a concert, and interviewed well-known celebrities.

I will not waste your investment. Soon enough you will see me on TV. I will remember the Travers Collins Communication Endow Donors for believing in me and my dreams.

By awarding me the Travers Collins Communication Endow scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community.  I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.

Thank you so much. I am truly grateful.
