Dear GHRoW,

I want to thank you for everything you have contributed toward my education.  Because of your scholarship, I am able to go to an amazing school which gives me many opportunities.  I am in a place where I feel the presence of God.  At SVA, we’re all a family .  There’s no place I’d rather be.  I appreciate that you are the reason I am able to be here.  And because of that, I will forever be grateful.  Thank you.
