Voice: IVC donors should be proud

May 12, 2002

In the Sunday paper there was a half a page ad on the scholarships that have been awarded to the students of Imperial Valley College and it listed the donors.

The donors can be very proud to be able to help someone they do not even know. No matter what the amount is that they receive, they are so thankful for it. In many cases an extra $20 or $30 can make a difference during the semester.

I have been told so many times by students who have received these scholarships that they cannot believe that some one that they do not know would want to help them reach their goals. The thing is the scholarships don't have to be in the hundreds of dollars. They can be any amount that a person would like to give.

It is a wonderful feeling to know that in your life you helped someone else in need. Ron Schoors and his staff are doing a wonderful job running the IVC Foundation. Thank you all.
