Fulfilling higher education dreams


I wanted to thank the Chamber and committee members for the wonderful scholarship award that I was awarded recently to my daughter, K. Lee. The scholarship award will definitely help her when she transfer from Foothill Community College to a  four-year college this coming Fall Semester.

It was so rewarding to know that your organization helps out young students in fulfilling their higher education dreams. It is truly an honor that my daughter received this award. As a young disabled adult, this award gives her the confidence and acknowledges all her hard work she has accomplished in achieving her higher education dreams and goals.

Again, I want to express my sincere appreciation and thank you very much.

Thank you for this opportunity, it opened my eyes to other careers I may be interested in. I'm a pretty shy person, and having to go out and talk about the Chamber made me feel more comfortable. Thank you very much.

Thank you for the opportunity that you have us to Intern at the Chamber. I learned about the Chamber and the City in general.

Thank you guys for the fun week I had. I honestly learned a lot and saw what it was to be in a professional environment. It has built my courage because I saw so many successful people that were focused on one goal but ended up somewhere better. You guys were very welcoming and open to connecting all of us.
