December 22, 2011Meriden Chamber of Commerce/HOLA: We Enjoy Receiving Updates Like These Our Student Award Winners. The deadline for the Education awards is January 20, 2012.
I just wanted to drop you all a line and give you an update about my progress in college. I just returned home for my winter break and, after a quarter of hard work and studying, I am looking forward to the time off.
My first quarter of college was quite challenging. I was faced with adjusting to a new workload, a new school and life in a new state. I am proud to say that, with hard work, I succeeded well. I made the Dean's List my first quarter and am very happy with my performance.
As you may remember, I entered college with the thought of becoming an airline pilot. Taking my introductory class and learning more about the industry has led me to change my mind. While I am not completely sure what I would like to do, I have been exploring several options. I am currently interested in the fields of law enforcement and medicine.
On campus, I have been getting involved. I have a part-time job at the front desk of my residence hall. As well, I am in RHAC, which is a campus-wide organization designed to improve life in the residence halls. Additionally, I serve on my dorm's hall council.
Your award has been most helpful in financing my career at Ohio State. I am so glad that I decided to become a Buckeye and I am grateful that your scholarship helped me get here. I'm wishing you all the best with scholarship selection in the next few months and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.
Regards, Joey Jones
