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

I am most excited about getting the full college experience of life on campus.  I think it'll be a major change and a big step in my life, but I'm ready for it.  I also can't wait to meet new people and make new friends at the campus.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

By far my favorite hobby is definitely bow hunting.  It requires much more skill and patience rather than regular rifle hunting.  The season is longer than most other seasons and you can hunt just about anything with a bow.  My other hobbies include regular hunting, fishing, video games, four wheeling, dirt biking, and hanging out with friends.

Alexander's Thank You Note

Thank you the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation for giving me this opportunity to receive this scholarship.  I look forward to attending the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and plan to do great things there.  Thanks so much!

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

I am excited to get away from home and experience independent life where I can make my own decisions and meet new people.

Andrew's Thank You Note

Dear Scholarship Donors, I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude for your generosity. Thank you so much for financially assisting me in my goal of a college degree in Industrial Technology. Coming from a small family farm, I learned how to work hard at a young age. At the age of 14 I got a job at Economy Feedmill and I have been working there and on the farm ever since. It is this building of my work ethic that I hope will help me do my best and succeed in college. Having worked hard to earn money has taught me the value of money and it has made me appreciate the money I receive such as your donation. I am very grateful for your kindness and would once again like to say thank you for helping me.

Zachary's Thank You Note

With extreme gratitude, I write this letter of thanks to you. My name is Zachary Fischer and I am the proud recipient of the River Ridge High School community scholarship. This scholarship will help me with the cost of tuition and expenses in my pursuit of a degree in Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I intend to use my degree to become a Law Enforcement Ranger for a State or National Park Service. I have always been taught great rewards come from hard work. In high school, I have taken challenging courses to help prepare myself for the future and whatever it may hold. I know that if I want to reach my dreams I must work hard to achieve them. This scholarship will help me reach these dreams and so much more. Thank you again for this generous contribution.
