Career Beginnings Students Express Their Thoughts
...I would like to express how honored and thankful I am for you that you recognize me as being a worthy candidate in the honors of the scholarship to be applied to my future of being a Juvenile Probation Officer by helping me out with books, my transportation to school, and giving me a chance to be relaxed from the stresses of supporting my son and putting myself through school. It is individuals like you that really give inspirations to students like me who really just need people to believe in them.
Being a commuter it's definitely more difficult being a part of more because I'm not here that often and costs can add up. I've had a part time job ever since I started but the financial help I’ve received from Career Beginnings has been a true blessing. From textbooks, to parking passes, and gas this scholarship has been an incredible help. I’m very excited for what's to come and very thankful for the help I’ve been offered through Career Beginnings.
