Here is another thank you from a Rotary Dollars for Scholars winner.
Hi Rotary Club!  Thank you so much for choosing me for your scholarship!  I am incredibly grateful for your support!  I plan to attend Central College in pursuit of a degree in Elementary Education I.  However, this fall I have decided to go on a nine-month gap year mission trip across the world serving and helping others.  I will be going to Swaziland, Ethiopia, Cambodia, and South Africa in those nine months.  I am so excited to be able to help in other nations and connect with the people I meet.  When I get back, I plan to pursue my education at Central in hopes of working with young students in my career.  Ever since our family adopted my little brother from Ethiopia, Africa, I have found tremendous joy in spending time with him.  This encouraged me to get involved in other opportunities working with kids, and I have enjoyed every minute of them.  I love to be able to support young students as they grow in their knowledge and to be a positive role model.  Your donation is much appreciated in pursuing this passion and I thank you again for your generous support!   
Sincerely, Samson, Densmore (Son of Ankeny Rotarian Mark Densmore)
