As spring semester comes to a close, it is always a very bittersweet time. We're excited for our seniors and the opportunities they will have moving forward, but we will sure miss having them in the Scholarship House. It's truly amazing how this scholarship can bring people together and create such an impactful family atmosphere. The rest of this story will be dedicated to providing a look into what our seniors are going to be up to in the near future.
