My resolve to complete my OT Master’s degree has been reinforced. This week I received a grant from the Viola Palmer Memorial Scholarship.
Here is an edited snippet from my Thank you letter:
Grad school takes a lot of focus and I’ve got a lot of things going on in my life: a beautiful 8 month old baby, a new wife, some medical conditions that go along with aging, and a 5 hr daily commute.
The money is important for paying bills but the idea that a stranger would help me get through grad school is revitalizing. It speaks to your confidence in this path and faith in my success. There are times when I am low on confidence and faith; you restore me. Thank you.
