What does the scholarship mean to me?: I am very thankful to receive the John J. Peterson scholarship. Since I started college, I have financially supported myself by working one or two jobs while in school. However, it became even more challenging for myself and my family when I stopped working in my junior year to focus on academics and recruitment. However, receiving this scholarship is a blessing that arrived at the right time. I am extremely grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Peterson for their help. Their support motivates to continue striving for success so that one day I can do the same for others.
