Scholarship Winners

“Dear Murphy Law Firm,

First of all, wow! I could not believe that I have the opportunity to get this generous donation. This award means a lot to me. Ever since they made corrections to my FAFSA, I have has to pay the last three semesters out of pocket, and in little time. I am having to borrow five thousand dollars from my parents, and it hurts me to do that. But, this money will help pay half the amount this semester. If only you could see the excitement on my face when I first read the e-mail. I am super happy for this award. This is a great scholarship foundation and I wish you all many more years in supporting people like me!

Sincerely,

Ericka Tobar”
