2007 AMERICAN PATRIOT FREEDOM SCHOLARSHIP AWARDEES
I am thrilled to have received this scholarship for the 2007-2008 school year. It helps out in tremendous ways for me and my family! I have a twin sister who is also enrolled full time in college. This scholarship helps out because my parents do not have to worry about how they are going to put two kids through college! The scholarship will be a blessing to me and my family because we will be able to concentrate on school. I will be able to put this towards my tuition and some books as well. I thoroughly appreciate this.
I want to begin with saying once more. “THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU” for awarding me the scholarship. Words could never express how much it means to me as I begin my post-secondary education journey.
In less than two months I will be embarking on a new education voyage: College. I cannot wait to begin attending Longwood University this fall. I’ve already attended Freshmen Orientation and registered for my classes as a Liberal Studies: Elementary Education major. When I took the college placement test for Spanish, I placed into Spanish 320. Testing so high will allow me to complete my Spanish minor by the end of my sophomore year. Should funds allow, I plan to study abroad in Spain next year also.
Though I’m looking forward to my upcoming years in college, I’m anticipating even more my post-college career. Upon graduating with a degree in Elementary Education and a double-minor in Spanish and Business, I would like to be a Kindergarten teacher for a minimum of 5 years to gain experience in the field. During this time, I plan to hone my skills in business/accounting, the Spanish language, and graphics/advertising. These skills will be of good use when I start my own business. Six to seven years after graduating, I will have my own business which will expand to become a nation-wide franchise of child development centers.
I honestly cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for me. So with that being said, I have to say “thank you” once more for selecting me for your scholarship.
Once again, I would like to thank you and the scholarship committee for selecting me as one of the 2007 American Patriot Freedom Scholarship Award recipients. I am extremely grateful to receive this scholarship and know it will help me to reach my personal and professional goals in life. I fully understand it is a considerable investment. I will not disappoint. I will work hard and apply myself.
The funds will be used toward a quality post-secondary education at Louisiana State University. I expect the experience and knowledge I receive in college will better prepare me for the life that I plan to lead. Higher education is important to my future because it will assist me in establishing my career goals and contribute to my success, maturity and development. I addition, it will provide me with a broader range of career opportunities and the skills necessary to make a valuable contribution to society.
Thank you again for your generosity,
The scholarship I received in 2006 helped me tremendously, and the one I will be receiving for this school year, will also help in a big way as I continue my experience here at The Ohio State University. The scholarships have allowed me to focus primarily on my studies without having to worry about whether there will be money for my tuition next quarter. This freedom has given me the opportunity to branch out and truly experience all of the possibilities that college has to offer. Last years award was a tremendous boost and relieved a heavy burden from me and my family, and I feel that this years award will help push me that much closer to achieving my full potential. I would like to thank you again for all that you have done for me and others like me around the service.
I want to express my thanks for the American Patriot Freedom Scholarship. I am currently in attendance at Brigham Young University, and it is because of this money that I am able to pay for school.
It is truly wonderful to be able to graduate from high school, and continue my education in college. I am majoring in Computer Science, and it is a wonderful field of study. I am so glad that I am able to continue my education in this area.
Thank you so much for your help. I will always appreciate it.
First of all I would like to thank you for choosing me to receive this scholarship. I greatly appreciate the reward. This scholarship means a great deal to me because it means that it will pay off the rest of my college bill. I had always dream to get a full-ride scholarship for sports and when that did not happen I realized how much foundations like yours can help me. Once again I am very grateful for being the recipient of this scholarship.

I would like to express my sincere thanks for selecting me as a candidate for a $1000.00 educational scholarship. This generous award will assist me in meeting my life long dream of being an Aerospace Engineer. My personal goal is to help design and build the next generation of airplanes for the United States Air force and this fine award gets me one step closer to fulfilling my dream.
Thank you again for helping me to not only obtain a great education, but most of all for helping my dreams come true.

Receiving this $1,000 scholarship is very much appreciated and definitely will help me with my college expenses. It is very important that the foundation knows this scholarship award will be helping me out so much and how honored I am to have been one of the 20 selected. I am currently taking business general courses and am not totally decided on my major yet, but am thinking business - sales and marketing. I really like St. Cloud State University and am the first in the family to attend a 4-year college.

I truly appreciated receiving the Homefront America Scholarship! It played an irreplaceable role in my dream of becoming a high school teacher. The ability to pursue higher education is a blessing. Learning to walk alongside teenagers, to enable them to bring joy in our world, uplifts my spirit.

The scholarship that I received from your institution has aided me greatly at Sewanee, The University of the South. Sewanee is a small, yet very expensive school, and the scholarship money has helped me to compensate for the cost of books and room and board. The fact that the scholarship is a military scholarship is also great for military kids overseas (like I was) who don't have the opportunity to apply for local scholarships. Thanks Homefront America,

I am a scholarship awardee from your 2006 American Patriot Freedom Scholarship. I would like you to know this scholarship has been a blessing for me. It has allowed me to focus less on the financial needs of college and more on the educational benefits of college. I thank you and the program so much for supporting my college career.

I truly appreciate the scholarship that was awarded to me from Homefront America. I have been able to begin my college career without the worry that many have with “how will I pay for my tuition.” I am eager to continue classes that will bring me to my goal of a career in Psychology. I also feel very honored to have had my voice heard on what I think is an important topic. The military has always been good to my family and I am proud to be a part of it.

I would like to thank you for all that you have done for me and others like me. The scholarship was a tremendous boost and relief for me and my family. It allowed me to focus primarily on my studies without having to worry whether there would be enough money for next quarter’s tuition. This freedom gave me the opportunity to branch out and truly experience all that college has to offer.
