Sara Story, scholarship recipient

Jim and Beverly Rogers have made it possible for me to fulfill my dreams of going to university through their constant encouragement and financial support. Without their help, I would never have been able to attend a Division I school. Because of their assistance, I was able to follow my heart and pursue my passions, rather than worrying about money. Because of this, I have been a more involved and enthusiastic student, getting involved in my community and daring to dream bigger. The opportunities I have received have been innumerable. In a world where education is becoming harder and harder to afford, the Rogers provide the glimmer of hope for needful students. I am one of these very lucky students. I have even taken to calling them my “fairy godparents!” My future looks brighter thanks to the financial support provided by the Rogers.

With help from the Rogers, I was able to make my first international journey. I studied history in London, Dublin, and Edinburgh for seven weeks. It was the trip of a lifetime that opened up my eyes to the world around me. I learned a number of countless life lessons from this experience—a journey that was made possible by Jim and Beverly. They have helped me fulfill so many of my wildest dreams! Their dedication to education and blossoming young students make them an invaluable ally for students. I was so fortunate to have them on my team and I thank my lucky stars every day for leading me to them!
