When I was initially informed about the McConnell Scholarship, I felt it fit my interests and needs in so many ways it was made for me. To actually receive the scholarship and all of the connections that come with it is a dream come true. I know that the resources I now have access to, both human and material will give me the best possible start as I open a new chapter in life.
