Our Students

"I was very pleased to learn I was selected as a scholarship recipient. I am an older, 32-year-old, nontraditional student and am going back to school after over a decade to change careers. I am working towards an associate degree in Automobile Technology and becoming a fully certified Ford automotive technician...this scholarship will significantly decrease my financial burden, allow me to focus on my studies, and improve the quality of my life. I am now even more motivated to do as well as possible in school and training."

"Thank you very much for this opportunity to further my education with the generous support from the Quentin C. Walsh Memorial and Lombard scholarship funds. I am very grateful and honored and plan to use these resources to further my life skills and future career. As someone who does not have many resources, you are helping me build my life and future into something I can be proud of and extremely enthusiastic about."
