Several current and past recipients of our club scholarships have provided some testimonials indicating what these generous gifts have meant to them.
My name is Riley Thompson and I am a 2017 graduate from Mercer Island High School in Mercer Island, WA. Currently, I am a junior at the University of Michigan studying Gender and Health on a pre-med track. At the university, I am a member of the Chi Omega Fraternity, where I serve as the chapter president. I am also involved in Outrage Dance, Phi Chi Pre-Medical Fraternity and Relay for Life. Being a student at Michigan is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to study with individuals who care as much as I do about academics but also have some of the best school spirit in the country. Next semester I have the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Paris through the university’s exchange program. I look forward to my last three semesters at the university, but I am also blown away by how quickly the time has flown. As always, go Blue!
My name is Corrina Lee and I am a senior at the University of Michigan. I am from Bothell, originally, so I had a lot to get used to when I first moved to Ann Arbor. Even after four years, I am still discovering and learning so many new things at this school. This year, I am finishing up my majors in English and Economics. Besides academics, I am a movie reviewer which allows me to use my study breaks to see some great films.
Eddie Jung graduated summa cum laude from Skyline High School in Sammamish, Washington. He is a freshman in the College of Engineering intending to study Biomedical Engineering. He is a starter on the University of Michigan Fencing Club team and plans to commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force upon graduation through Detachment 390’s ROTC program. In addition, he is one of two engineering students accepted into the Health Sciences Scholars Program to learn more about improving the nation’s healthcare system. The Roby M. Burley Scholarship has allowed Eddie to pursue these and many other opportunities available at the University of Michigan.
