Dear Scholarship Donor,
I am sincerely grateful to have been selected as one of the recipients of the EMUHSD Scholarship. Thanks to your generosity, this scholarship will help me pursue my educational goal of becoming a registered nurse in the future and help those in need. I am a senior at Mountain View High School on the verge of graduating in a couple of days. I will continue my education at Azusa Pacific University where I will major in Nursing & Honor Humanities. Upon my graduation from APU, I hope to work as a travel nurse for a couple of years and then transition to working at a children's hospital to get the opportunity to heal, motivate and care for my patients and their families. By being one of the recipients of the EMUHSD Scholarship, I will be able to continue my education and pay for any needed expenses. I hope one day I get the opportunity to help high school graduates like myself achieve their goals and pursue their dreams just like you have helped me.
Sincerely, Jessica Guerrero, Mountain View High School C/O 2021

Dear Ms. Autran and the EMUHSD Student Scholarship Fund Committee,
I first want to say Thank you! Honestly, when you first said I was getting a scholarship I thought it was a joke. Having it now feels different. Honestly, I feel like I don't deserve it, but if you gave it to me it means you see something I don't. It gives me hope that hard work doesn't go unnoticed and it also pays off. I will use this money for necessities like school supplies and food for my mini-fridge. Again, from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate it, and thank you very much.
Your student, Nefthali Burciaga, Mountain View High School C/O 2021
