Dear NCHS Alumni Scholarship Committee,


Words can not express how thankful I am for this scholarship! My level of gratitude goes beyond all expectations. I will be attending AACC in the Fall and transfer to UMD: College Park in the Spring, where I got accepted. With the help of this scholarship and other financial aid, I will be able to attend AACC in the Fall for almost no cost at all! I can not stress enough how thankful I am for the opportunity this scholarship has given me. It has lifted a financial burden off my family's shoulders. Again, thank you so much and I promise as a determined student, the North County High School Alumni Scholarship will NOT go to waste. My family and I appreciate all of your support. Thank you so much to all of the supporters and donors and also the Board of Directors!

Dear NCHS Alumni Scholarship Fund,


I'd like to express my extreme gratitude for the generous scholarship you have awarded me. I know this would not be possible without the organization and help from the generous donors who support the Alumni Scholarship Fund and the students which the organization supports. I appreciate your recognition of my efforts. It is a great honor to achieve this scholarship. It will enable me to focus on my studies without financial uncertainty.

Dear North County High School Alumni Scholarship Fund, Inc.,


I want to thank you for your generous award of a $500.00 scholarship for college. I would like to thank the Board of Directors for their dedication and effort they put into making this scholarship available. With the cost of college constantly rising, this award will definitely help to defray some of the fees associated with pursuing a college degree. I am very excited to be able to achieve my goals artistically and academically by double majoring in dance and environmental science at UMBC. I would also like to thank the NCHS alumni, families, friends, and local businesses who have donated to the fund, and for their generosity towards North County High School students. I have been very proud to be a North County Knight for the past few years and to be a recipient of the North County High School Alumni Scholarship Award is truly an honor. Thank you!
