"Receiving scholarships has been a blessing. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to the many private and public scholarship donors. Scholarships make the possibility of higher education a reality for many individuals, including me. Earning a scholarship is the best reward someone can receive; it is the gift of an education and a reason to keep striving. In addition, Kent State Tuscarawas offers students a quality education for a reasonable cost. When I graduate from Kent State University, I know I won't be weighed down with debt." -Raya Williamson
