Yazmin Muñoz2018-2019 Scholarship Awardee
Dear DCCCD Retirees Association Endowed Scholarship Donor,
I am honored to be a recipient of the DCCCD Retirees Association Endowed Scholarship for the Spring 2019 semester. Because of your generous support, I can continue my academic career as a first-generation college student. Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges but has also helped me realize the value of a college education. I will continue my undergraduate education at El Centro College this Spring and can already report that my academics will be off to an excellent start.
My plans at this stage are to major in Nursing and minor in Spanish with the hope of becoming a travel nurse and a certified medical interpreter. Thank you personally for your generosity; without scholarship patrons like you, students such as myself would be unable to pursue such health care degrees. Your scholarship will help me pay for classes that will advance my path towards success, so once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and scholarship. I am committed to my education and to the health care field, and with every dollar, I am one step closer towards achieving my dreams and making the world a better place. With your help, I will receive the education and training needed to provide excellent comfort and care to various patients in communities across the world.
Rest assured, your investment in the Dallas community will not go unnoticed. By continually volunteering with the DCCCD Street Team as a student ambassador of El Centro College, I will promote higher education and inspire others to follow in the footsteps that you have allowed me to make. Moreover, I will serve as a student leader for El Centro College Phi Theta Kappa chapter—Sigma Tau and develop my leadership skills by continuing my active membership in iLEAD and League of United Latin American Citizens. Thanks to your generosity and the DCCCD Retirees Association Endowed Scholarship, I will one day help relieve the health care disparity present throughout the globe and be the leader that my community requires me to be.
Once again, thank you for supporting students throughout the Dallas County Community College District. Your generosity truly makes a difference!
Sincerely, Yazmin Muñoz
