What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am excited to further my education, and getting a solid foundational start at UW-Platteville.  I am also excited to follow in my grandfather and parents' footsteps who are alumni of UW-Platteville.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I enjoy playing basketball, track, and volunteering my time. One advantage of going to school in my home town is that I will be able to continue volunteering for Special Olympics.

Nathaniel's Thank You Note

Thank you for awarding me this scholarship to attend UW-Platteville. I do not qualify for student aid and am responsible for paying my own tution. Even with working two jobs during high school it was finacially difficult to come up with enough money to pay for my tution. Your generosity helped ease those financial constraints, and it is greatly appreciated. I look forward to attending UW-Platteville and following in my parents and grandfather's footsteps.

Elinor Burton

What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I'm excited to take classes at UW-Platteville that aren't offered in high school, classes that go into the specifics of a subject instead of ones that try to cover a more broad range of topics. I hope to find what I want to do with my life and learn about fascinating concepts and ideas.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am a creative writer, and have written for my school's Literary Magazine and have competed in writing competitions. Naturally, I am a hard-core book addict and like to skim through dictionaries looking for new and interesting words.

Elinor's Thank You Note

I'd like to thank the donors to the Platteville High School Community Fund. The money you donate will help myself and other scholarship winners to pay for college when otherwise we would struggle to do so. Hopefully you can continue to donate so others like me can get further education after high school. Also, thank you to the scholarship committee for choosing me for this scholarship - this will really go a long way to paying for books and tuition for my college experience.

Emma Wilson

What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am excited to really experience life on my own and discover who I am and what my interests and dreams really are. I love being involved and I am so excited to participate in all of the theater opportunities but then also try things I have never done before. I am a very social person and I can't wait to make new friends and get involved in campus life. I still have no idea what career I want to pursue. I can't wait to see my life unfold, push my boundaries, and really see where life takes me.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love being involved. I am very musical and artistic as well as athletic. I love creative writing and performing. I love getting up in front of people. I am a distance runner as well as a high jumper. I love ballroom dance and social activities and events.

Emma's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for giving me this scholarship. I am so excited and ready for college and this makes all of the difference and helps take some of the financial burden off of my shoulders. Thank you for supporting our generation and helping me build my future.
