Dear HPOU,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the scholarship you gave me. I will be attending Baylor University in the fall and majoring in Health Science Studies – Pre-Med. I know the scholarship will help me reach my goals in life. Your kind gift and fun breakfast have helped to make my senior year memorable. I appreciate you all!
