"I just wanted to let you guys know how much my scholarship means to me. My dad and I were laid off from work due to COVID, so funds haven't been the best. This is going to really help not just my family but my education. Jose was actually a good friend of mine, so it feels like, in a way, he's helping me too. Thank you so much for everything. I appreciate it so much."
