We are presenting our daughter with the scholarship
to Columbia College. I was the one who went with her, and it was beautiful. I loved the
campus and the people who were there were really warm and welcoming. We are from Columbia College, and we are here
today to recognize one of your classmates. Congratulations Alex! I was really surprised, and kind of overwhelmed.
The microphone kind of scared me a little bit. I had to stay really on top of my studies
and on top of just trying to get to the best that I could be, to try and stay where I am
at and to win a wonderful scholarship like this. I can’t really say a negative thing about
her, she is kind, generous, independent, hard worker, strong willed, all of the clubs that
she is involved in, just digging deep and working hard for what she’s got. I would really like to thank Ms. Inca, and
my mom and my dad for supporting me and pushing me through this, because without them I don’t know how
I would have stayed up til 1, 2, 3 in the morning doing homework, and working on scholarships,
and college applications, and just being me. She’s my sunshine, she has been since the
day she was born. Congratulations, good job! Hey, guess what? Holy Cow! Awesome! Give me a hug! Oh, look
at you! That’s cool, congratulations! Thank you.
