Welcome, Class of 2016!

Dear Corvias Foundation Class of 2016,

Let me start off by saying: welcome to the family, and congratulations! We are so glad to welcome you to this group that is comprised of both current scholars and alumni. This award is given so much thought before being presented, and you are all amazing, intelligent, world-changing people. In our group, you will find people who are going through, have been through, or can at least relate to some of the emotions and decision-making processes that you are currently experiencing and completing. We know how it feels to have moved around the country with your family, and then we know how different it is when you’re doing it by yourself. We know what it feels like to no longer live on, or potentially even near, a military base, and how weird that is when that is all you’ve known. It is important to understand that not only did you receive a source of financial support by receiving this scholarship, but also one of emotional, mental, and, as often as possible, physical support that goes well beyond the next four years.

That also lead me to understanding that I have been out of my undergrad for an entire year already. I thought that college flew by, but it seems like this first year post-undergrad went by even faster.
