Africa University student thanks Louisiana Conference for scholarship assistance

July 04, 2016
The following is a letter which was received by the Louisiana Conference Episcopal office from Rumbidzai Sithole, a graduating senior from Africa University. In the letter, Sithole thanks the conference for the scholarship awarded to her. The Louisiana Conference has a history of supporting this institution of higher learning on the African continent and the students attending classes there. 

Dear Donor,

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for the scholarship I received. I am a Bachelor of Science in Economics major now awaiting graduation in June 2016. This scholarship has gone a long way in helping me get an education. By awarding me this scholarship, you lightened my financial burden which allowed me to focus on my studies.

I aspire to be a Financial Analyst, start a Financial Consulting Firm and also a Real Estate business. After graduation, I plan on starting my search for a masters scholarship and then later obtain my CFA. Thanks to you I am now a step closer to my goals. It is through your generosity that I feel inspired to help others and also give back to my community. I hope that one day I will also be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.

Forever grateful,

Rumbidzai Sithole
