Our #ShorterGivesThanks campaign shares our students’ own words of thanks to donors who are helping make their education possible.
“I am from Puerto Rico. This year, we got hit with a big hurricane, and my grandfather, who was helping me pay for school, lost everything. This scholarship not only helped me finish my first year of nursing school but it also brought some light into my life during a very dark time. For that, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you again for your generosity.” – Yanelis Hernandez
“I am extremely grateful for y’all! I am a senior biology major who just got accepted into medical school. Without y’all’s donation, I would not have been able to attend Shorter and pursue my dream of becoming a doctor! Thank you!” – Gracie Grant
“Simply put, I thank you for your contribution. As a communication major, I have the ability to flourish in my academic field through your graciousness. I know that being a recipient of this scholarship is a high honor, and since it is a high honor, I hold my work to an expert level of distinction.” – Cecil Robinson
“I come from a small town in Texas and moved 700 miles away from home to attend Shorter University. When I got here, I was homesick and doubting my calling when I heard I had received this scholarship. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!!! God showed me I am on the right track, and is has allowed me to focus solely on my internship at church and my ministry. You have shown me God’s grace and love for me in a huge way.” – Lauren Jendrezejewski
“I am a junior music education major who plans to attend seminary/grad school for ethnomusicology. If it were not for your generosity, I would not be able to afford to attend this amazing school on the Hill that I have come to call ‘Home!’ Thank you!!!” – Becky F.
