It is with great gratitude that I thank the U-M Alumni Club of Silicon Valley for this scholarship! My first year at this out-of-state university has proven to be worth every penny, due to the myriad opportunities that it presents to its vast population of students.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to enjoy what I would not otherwise experience at any other institution, and for also making this possible for others to come. Forever Go Blue!!
