"Hi Ms. Linda
Thank you so much! I appreciate everything you and everyone in dc have done for me these past few months
I know for a fact I wouldn't have been so successful in my college process if it wasn't for you guys and I'm just grateful to have been part of such an amazing program
Have a great summer you too!"

"Dear Ms. Linda, 

I received the letter. Thank you so much for the Jeff Cooney Memorial Scholarship! I am beyond grateful for all that Destination College has provided and edified me with over the past nearly three years. This program has been extremely beneficial not only to me but to countless low-income, first-generation, and minority students in the city of Mount Vernon. Once again, thank you and I hope this small token of my immense gratitude finds you well. Have a lovely day! 🙂"
