Four of the 574 scholarships Delta College awarded for Fall 2019 went to students who qualified for the Dr. Bob award. Ted and I recently received the thoughtful thank you notes from the students, who each received $1000. Not a large amount, but enough to make going to Delta a little easier. Here’s what the students had to say.
I would like to express my gratitude for offering me the Dr. Robert R. Zimmermann “Dr. Bob” Scholarship. I am going to be doing my general studies at Delta. I have always loved animals and hope some day to work in the animal rehabilitation field.
I am currently working my degree in applied science. After graduation, I plan to follow my dreams of being an OB nurse, working with pregnant women and newborns. . . . Your generosity will help be get one step closer to achieving my goals in life.
I am pursuing a career in the health care field. . . . I will put this scholarship money to use by furthering my education at Delta College. I can’t thank you enough for opening your hearts to people whom you have never met. I too would love to one day help others. . . . You are the real role models.
I plan to pursue a career as an early childhood educator and I will be finishing my course work at Delta College and then transfer to Ferris State University. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to my ultimate goal. . . . Again, my thanks to you for your trust and consideration of my academic abilities.
We are grateful for the opportunity to help out these students and look forward to their fantastic achievements in the future.
