Upon opening the email telling me that I received the award from the HIGH program, I felt a sudden sigh of relief. A relief that I will not put my family in debt that it cannot pay off and a relief that I will not have to work many extra hours to be able to pay off my tuition debt. Receiving this award from the HIGH program will help me succeed in school due to me being able to focus on school instead of focusing on finances. This award was a very encouraging thing to receive as it was a huge stress reliever for me and my family. The HIGH program is an amazing, generous program that helps students that are truly in need of financial help and are focused on their future, move forward with their education and excel in school. I am truly thankful for receiving this award from the HIGH program as it will assist me tremendously.
