We received the following letter from our scholarship recipient:
Dear Ms. Maria Brogan,
I want to thank you, Ms. Brogan, and all those at the Northeast Association of Realtors for your generosity. I am honored to accept this award, and even more honored in your belief in me. The extra financial assistance comes as a huge relief to me as I look forward to completing the 2019 spring semester with less financial stress on my mind. I’m continuing my full-time work as a PCA (personal care attendant) along with 13 credits this semester, with plans to take summer classes. My goals are to complete my two-year computer science transfer program at Middlesex Community College, and then finish my bachelor’s degree in computer science at UMASS Lowell. I’m trying to fit in as many classes as I can with my schedule with hopes to finish my degree in as short of a time as possible while still being able to support myself. Your generosity will help me immensely in completing my goals and I want to assure you and those at the Northeast Association of Realtors that this opportunity will not be squandered, and I very much will not take it for granted. I am very grateful for your assistance.
