"I know the Elks to be a big part of community life in my home town, in my state, and across the country. I am truly honored to be recognized by your outstanding organization with this scholarship. Thank you for your investment in my education and my future.
I want you to know how much I appreciate what you and the Elks organization do to help students like me. It is an immense relief to know that I will receive $1,000 each year to help with my college payments as part of my scholarship. Thank you again."
