 When asked how being a veteran's dependent made her the person she is today, she answered,

"Having a parent in the military meant moving a lot. It gave me the opportunity to live in and visit some great places, but it also teaches you to make the most of wherever you are."

When asked how Sustainability for Scholarships has helped you, she answered,

"This scholarship has taken a lot of stress away from paying for school. I'm so grateful for Sustainability for Scholarships!"



After Sustainability for Scholarships first year in operation, the first scholarship was awarded to veteran, Joseph Romano. Part of the scholarship ceremony can be seen in the video to the right.

"{This scholarship} has allowed me to focus on my studies. This was my first semester back in school after 8 years."
