“I knew college was going to be expensive, but it wasn’t until I started my college search that I realized just how overwhelmingly pricey it was—to the point that it was going to be impossible for me and my dad to afford a college education. I lived in a single-parent home and my dad’s illness prevented him from working. I was devastated and discouraged.
But then something truly remarkable happened: I received a scholarship to Roberts that was made possible by the generosity and selflessness of alumni and friends of the college. I was able to attend Roberts and achieve my life-long dream of getting a college education.
I am forever grateful to the many people who give to the Roberts Fund. I can attest to its value. Without scholarships, I would never have been able to attend, experience such rich spiritual growth, and become the young woman God planned for me to be.”
