Thank you so much for choosing me for the Legacy Septic Scholarship. I truly appreciate it, and I will strive to make you proud of me while attending York College of PA and in my career as an environmental engineer. Your help to achieve my career goal is invaluable and your dedication to the success of the next generation is exemplary. You have set an example that I shall remember when I have my own business someday. Thank you once again for your help and for your belief in my abilities.
