"I feel incredibly privileged to be among a collection of such gifted and hardworking students that made up the pool of national applicants. I have great faith that all the applicants will help bring the world into a bright new future with all the help the Elks Foundation has provided them… I have found a new family in the Elks association that will be cheering me on through both college and the future I decide to create for myself after college. I could not have asked for a better opportunity to help me thorugh college and will never be able to show my appreciation enough."
Graeme Jacobson, Scholar
