I am humbled and honored to have received the generous scholarship you have granted me! This scholarship will allow me to further my goals of earning a degree in mathematics at either Grace College or Georgetown College. I would like to thank those people responsible in making this decision!

I would like to take this time to thank you so much for making me the recipient of a 2018 Newton Board of Education/American Legion Scholarship for $500.  These funds will be used for me to help better my education in college.  It is so greatly appreciated!

I am so thankful for the scholarship that you have given me! This will be a great help while I better my education in college and pursue a degree in Parks & Museum Education. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for this scholarship opportunity. It is nice to see my hard work recognized, especially by this foundation. Scholarships like this allow me to focus on my academics so that I do not have to get a job during the semester. The efforts of this foundation really make a difference for Miami County residents like me.
