Graduation Hat Throw

Thank You Notes

Dear Monty Award Foundation and Elise B. McCarthy Willey Nursing Fund,

I want to thank you for your generous scholarship and contribution to my Nursing education.  With your help I have been able to attend my dream school, and work towards becoming not only a nurse, but someone who will spend their career giving back to humanity, just as you have done for me.  Thank you for making a difference and encouraging students like me to do the same!

With gratitude,

Dear family and friends of Lillian A. Krasnow,

I am writing to thank you for your generous contribution to my undergraduate education through the Lillian Krasnow Memorial Fund.  I am entering my junior year at Anderson University in South Carolina, and I am double majoring in Clinical Psychology and Human Development/Family Studies.  My goal is to return to Laconia NH after earning my undergraduate degrees to study in graduate school and become a marriage and family therapist.  I greatly admire that Ms. Lillian Krasnow served as a psychiatric nurse.

Thank you for your generosity.

I am so grateful for this scholarship.  Words cannot express how much this donation to my education means to me.  I was so terrified about moving across the country to try to both work and go to school, but now I will be able to work over the summer and I should be able to pay for this next semester out of pocket.  Both of my parents got their bachelor degrees later in life, and they impressed on me the value and importance of an education.

I was so touched to read about the lives of Mona and Gwendolyn.  The sound like such remarkable women who were able to bless the lives of so many others, both in their occupations and various area of service.  I feel honored that any part of me holds a candle to the kind, intelligent women they were and I hope to be able to grow and nurture that piece.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Smith,

Thank you for your generosity in helping me further my education!  Journalism has been a passion of mine for some time now, and I continue to explore the field this summer with the internship I am in – I have finally begun to build my portfolio of published works!  It wouldn’t be possible without your support!

Thank you!

Dear Elsie B. McCarthy Willey Nursing Fund,

Thank you, for the very generous scholarship you have given me.  I cannot express enough how much the Elsie B. McCarthy Willey Nursing Fund really means to me and my family.  I could not help but cry tears of joy when I saw the generosity of you and your family.  It makes me so thankful that there are good people like you out there willing to help me and my family.

I hope to be as good of a nurse as Elsie was and have the strength in life that she did.  Hopefully, one day I can help others as you have helped me.

I cannot thank you enough for your generosity.  Your scholarship makes all of the difference to me and my sister.  I look forward to sharing with you all of my adventures and accomplishments of my sophomore year that you have made possible.

Thank you so much,

~ B. D.
