Sandra Murray - 2016 Recipient
Student Persistence Award (Lester A. Lefton Persistence Award).
"My husband and I both work, and we are both in school, I am obtaining my bachelor degree, and he is working on his Masters degree. We have debt from when we were younger we are still paying on, as well as car and student loans. We are making it work and keeping a roof over our heads and food on the table, but it doesn’t leave much to apply to tuition, books and fees. It is for these reasons that this scholarship means so much. I feel incredibly privileged to have received this scholarship to aid in the cost of my education, as it allows me to continue my calling to dedicate myself to helping others."
