I have been a recipient of the Bill Dickey Scholarship for the past three years. I am now in my final semester of college. I am so thankful to have been part of such and incredible organization through High School, and to have been a proud recipient of this amazing scholarship. My goals for college would have been unobtainable without the help of the BDSA. Last year was my first year not playing golf, I had the rug pulled from under me and lost a majority of my funding for my education through my athletic scholarship. Thankfully this organization was there to lift me up. I took summer school classes this semester in order to graduate early and again, the BDSA stepped in to help me achieve this goal. I would like to personally thank, Ms. Andrea Bourdeaux, for being such a reliable point of contact for myself throughout the scholarship process.
I will be graduating this fall 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts & Science in Government and a BAS in Psychology. These two degrees will be supplemented with University Honors through the current thesis I am working on, as well as cumulative 3.95 GPA. My success in my undergraduate years is due, in large part, to the monetary support I received from this institution. Once I have graduated I plan to work, travel, and gain some real-life experiences. After this gap year I will be attending law school in fall of 2020.
I am excited for the future I have envisioned for myself. A future in which I will able to give back to this great organization as it has given to me.
