I'm most excited to meet people and build relationships while I continue my education at UW-Platteville. I plan on being involved in different organizations and clubs!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love to sing and am considering joining the chorus at UW-Platteville.  I also love to play volleyball, so I hope to join an intramural team.

Olivia's Thank You Note

With this scholarship many visions that seem like dreams right now can become my reality.  As do many families, I know what it feels like to grow up in a financially struggling home.  I understand what value money has, and I am very thankful to be awarded with this scholarship and to have the chance to receive financial help for my education- it makes me realize that even though school is expensive and hard at times, it is all worth it because there are individuals, businesses, and organizations that are willing to lend a helping hand to students that need it.  Thank you for your generosity.

College is expensive, yet rewarding. I am very grateful for receiving the River Ridge (WI) HS Community Scholarship of $550. With this scholarship, I am closer to achieving my dream of becoming a forensic investigator. Thank you so very much.
