One recent scholarship recipient wrote the following, after receiving a Best of the Best scholarship, “It really touches my heart to know that there are people out there whom I have never even met that are willing to donate funds to help me pay for schooling. I am so appreciative and I can’t say thank you enough.

“To the Hutchinson Center Scholarship Committee and Village Soup, thank you so much for reviewing my application. I am so grateful to be one of the two chosen students to receive this scholarship. It has been a pleasure taking courses at the Hutchinson Center, and I am so thankful that everyone has been so helpful to me on my educational journey.”
