THANK YOU NOTES

Nothing makes us more proud than to see our scholarship students graduate and succeed. Below are some of the notes and videos we’ve received from our recipients.

“Because of your efforts, along with all members of the program, the RGC community, and my fellow coworkers, I received the social, emotional, and financial support to pursue a higher education. Today I was gratefully able to celebrate with my family as I am the first person in my family to ever receive a college degree. I cannot express my gratitude enough for giving me the courage to leave home and reach for something greater. I am currently planning the continuation of my education, and looking to build a lifelong career here in Raleigh. 
I am forever grateful to you and your generosity. I can only hope to pass it forward and show others the same kindness you all have shown me. You have provided so many local individuals with an incredible, life-changing opportunity. Please continue to do such wonderful work! I now have a greater sense of security and a brighter future ahead.” ~Emma Poole
