What they’re saying
I can proudly say you have not only changed the life of so many people over the course of 20 years, but you have also created a family and an amazing community. Thank you so much for all you have done, and I am forever grateful.
You mentored me and helped sculpt me into the man I am today. You believed in me and allowed me to make everyone I care about proud of me for who I am. I never lost sight or my direction because you were there helping me stay on my path. I am a Firefighter/Paramedic because of you and will never forget that.
I know I said this, but I will keep on repeating it when I’m still breathing: Thank you. Appreciation is never enough for everything you have given me. I would like to say thank you to every single person who is an ETK board member, whom I have met and I have not yet, whom I knew of and I did not. You do not realize how magnificent that meant to me to be able to have this scholarship. You gave me a gift, a treasure, and a legacy.
I cannot express how grateful I am for all of you. I just wish there is a word or a sentence that could fully express how grateful and joyful I am to have the ETK family in my life. I love you all deeply! I always keep our ETK members in my prayers. Thank you so much.
When I applied for the ETK scholarship, I had no expectation to receive the award because I had very low self esteem. I started believing in myself when I saw ETK board believe in me and in my dreams. I really do consider myself lucky to be part of this family.
