John Q. Smith Memorial Scholarship

Dear Scholarship Donor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity in funding
the John Q. Smith Memorial Scholarship. I am very honored to be the recipient of this award.

I am currently a sophomore majoring in Education, and my GPA is 3.83. I have completed 37 credit hours by taking classes as a part-time student for the last three years. My goal is to complete my degree here at the University of Michigan-Flint and then teach high school French and English in the southeastern part of Michigan.

While attending school I have been involved with the Future Teachers of America and Lambda Lambda service organization. We provide tutoring and mentoring on a weekly basis to two elementary schools located near the university campus. I have also helped organize three campus blood drives and winter coat collection.

Receiving this scholarship motivates me to maintain my GPA and complete my degree. I look forward to being able to give back to the community once I begin my career teaching. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals.

Sincerely,

Betty Ann Student
