My husband and I have been recipients of a number of the Union High School Alumni scholarships during our educational careers. They have impacted us tremendously. It has been an honor to receive these scholarships, and they have greatly reduced the stress of paying for education. My husband holds an Economics degree from Indiana University, and I will be gradating this May with a Master of Health Administration from Indiana University. We are very grateful for the Union High School Alumni Committee and the Greene County Community Foundation. Once I graduate in May, my husband and I hope to find jobs closer to Greene County and relocate to the area. We would love to give back to the communities that have been so gracious to us and shaped the individuals we are today.

Thank you for all you do!

The transition from high school to college can be very daunting. From the new learning environment to textbooks; it’s a very big change. While I had many things to worry about through this time, the Greene County Special Achievement Scholarship enabled me to relax a little about the cost of tuition. Collegiate education is a big investment and the Greene County Foundation has helped me to invest in my future.

The scholarship has allowed me to to pursue my passions and discover new and exciting interests that I never would have been able to without the assistance of the my foundation scholarship. I have been able to join the Purdue University Crew team and travel to several locations to compete in rowing events against school such as IU, Buffalo, Ohio State, Boston, Notre Dame and many more. I have been able to represent my university at these events and I would not have financially been able to afford to do so with out the assistance of my scholarship. I often count my lucky stars that I have been able to receive this, and thank God for all the friendships, memories and excitement that it has provided me.

The Helen Hunter Scholarship has been instrumental in furthering my medical education. With the rising cost of tuition and the astronomical expense of textbooks for medical school, the funds of the Helen Hunter Scholarship have greatly helped offset the cost. I am so thankful to be supported in my endeavors by my home community and the generosity of the scholarship beneficiaries. The Helen Hunter Scholarship has certainly helped relieve a substantial financial burden from both my family and me.
