"But again I am extremely thankful for this scholarship. To me, this contract symbolizes a promise. I was chosen because the Elk committee saw something in me that I see in myself: drive. I am one of the most driven people I know and I show that every day. I pour my heart and soul into my school work, my friends, and all other endeavors. I also never renege on my promises, which is why I believe that I was a good investment. This opportunity is very much appreciated. Thank you again for everything."
