CBT Sam Foltz Scholarship

– Our class project was
to establish a business. We had to really go into
depth with a business plan. – We wanted to run a
business that meant something more than just making a profit. The Sam Foltz accident had just happened, and people were still
kind of grieving over it. – We decided to honor Sam Foltz, and develop a scholarship
in his name here in Kearney. With Sam growing up around
here, we thought it would be great to give a scholarship
here in his name. (audience applauding) – It as a really good for the
people of Kearney especially to just come together and to be able to celebrate Sam’s life and
the legacy he left behind. – We were really touched. It was so meaningful to us
to know that people wanted to carry on Sam’s memory and
that he had impacted them to the point where they wanted
to keep his memory alive. – I think it just has to
do with Sam as a person. He was just a fantastic role model for everybody in Nebraska. – He was just known for
hard work, humility, he was always the kid that was
willing to go the extra mile, so to be honored with a
scholarship in his name, I just think the recipients
will feel honored. – Earning this scholarship
means a lot to me. It means that there are people out there who want you to do well. – It means that people
really care about my future, and they care about me getting a degree, and I can’t say thank you enough. – You know, I hope it helps
them to realize their dreams. We hope that it helps them
with their financial concerns for college, and also just that they remember Sam’s little logo. Dream big, work hard, and stay humble. (audience applauding) (gentle music)
