Dear Scholarship Donor:
I would like to extend a note of thanks for being awarded a Bay Foundation scholarship this school year.

The scholarship monies are very much appreciated and needed for tuition and books. I would like to once again say thank you. You can’t imagine how excited I was to receive the letter about the scholarship, just in time for tuition payment. Thank you.”

After not being in school for forty years, I decided to attend Bay College. Last year was my first year. I am going to school to become a medical office specialist. I am finding the experience very enlightening. Bay College is a wonderful institution. Thank you again for your generosity, I just want you to know how much it is appreciated. Sincerely.”
