I will be graduating from Oneonta High School soon. I've rescued several dogs and orphaned kittens, a squirrel, and two birds. I, along with my family, have adopted three rescue horses (including a pregnant mare close to delivery). I've volunteered at the shelter before and was very interested in fostering animals, but I couldn't because I am leaving soon for UAB. I spent a very sad and hard week caring for my first dog as he battled the parvo virus after we took him home from the shelter. Thankfully he made a full recovery!

I'd also like to express how thankful I am for this scholarship. Any contribution to the furthering of my education is a greatly appreciated one. I will be attending UAB to study medical equipment distribution. Have a great day and God bless!
