What does the scholarship mean to me?: With one of my sisters transferring to a university this year and my staying for an extra fifth year to finish up the requirements for my Master’s degree, the Robert D. and Margaret A. Wark Memorial Scholarship has definitely helped me and my family to finance the increased educational expenses. I am very thankful for the assistance this scholarship has given me and my family. It has helped both my sister and me to get quality education at the University of California.
