I’m extremely grateful and I appreciate everything that the Rotary Club of Livermore has done for the community and students like me. Not only does this scholarship help me financially, but it also encourages me to continue performing my best in college. I can’t express enough the positive impact scholarships like this have on students. I plan on using this scholarship to further my undergraduate studies and to pursue my passion with animals.
