Faith works in the Office of Financial Aid helping students secure financial assistance to attend Southeastern.
I want to let you know what your support of Southeastern can mean to students like me. I am grateful for every minute of my time here. The Southeastern community of faculty, staff and students has become my second family. Like many here on campus, I have a work-study position, as well as an outside job to help pay my bills. Despite these challenges, I will be graduating in three and a half years and have achieved a spot on the Dean’s List!
On a personal note, working for three years in the scholarship department shows me first hand just how important the scholarship program at Southeastern is to me and my fellow students. Your generosity in supporting the Southeastern Foundation allows many students to realize their dreams of a college education. I myself receive a scholarship as being a first generation student in my family to seek a college degree. Just the other day I saw a new student come to tears over the joy of learning that an unexpected scholarship had been awarded to him. In times like these, I remember how valuable my education is. Because of the environment at Southeastern and its culture of caring and encouragement, I will be heading to graduate school in anticipation of reaching my ultimate goal of establishing a nonprofit. Through a career in social work, I hope to be able to help others findtheir way through difficult times and show them that, with hard work and dedication, they too can reach their full potential.
In the future, I hope to send my children to Southeastern so that they may experience the care and concern that I have throughout my journey here as a proud Lion. I am personally asking you to support that legacy of caring by making a gift to Southeastern today. As the university’s fiscal year comes to an end on June 30, it is important to act swiftly so that we can start the new year with great momentum. I assure you, no gift is too small to make a difference!
Please make a difference in someone's life by giving today.
