2021 Charmayne Gooch Arts Scholarship

Thank you so much for creating a scholarship that is for kids like me. I feel like a lot of people in society forget about the more creative and less normal individuals. We are normally not the ones getting written about in the paper and often scholarships committees might not see us worth their time. That being said, thank you for creating one that is specific for kids like me and really encourages us to succeed. It’s because of people like you that I personally feel confident and supported in my abilities. You have no idea how much this scholarship will help me in my next academic year and I’m so excited to be able to be one of your recipients and again cannot thank you enough!
