"I am writing to thank you for your generous Mike Anderson Memorial Scholarship. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as a recipient of your scholarship. I am currently pursuing my nursing degree from DMACC in Ankeny, and I will graduate in the Spring of 2023. After graduation, I plan to work in a hospital as an acute care nurse.

By awarding me the Mike Anderson Memorial Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning.
