Throughout scholarship season this year, we are featuring a series spotlighting previous scholarship recipients by sharing the thank you notes they submitted to their respective scholarship committees.
Avtonom Martushev, a graduate of Win-E-Mac, earned two scholarships through NMF: the Arthur I. and Jane B. Snustad Scholarship and TEAM Industries – Don Ricke Scholarship
Here is what Avtonom submitted:
Dear Team Industries:
I am extremely thankful for being the recipient of your Don Ricke Scholarship. Thank you for your contribution towards my education. Your investment in me will pay off in your future.
Your donation will help me towards my educational goal of majoring in computer sciences. I currently am attending Cornell College because of the prestigious computer programs they offer. I now will be able to take more time into my studies and produce more with my education, bettering our future in the process.
My plan is to create software and new technology that will make our valuable resources become more efficient and longer lasting.
Once again thank you for choosing me to represent your Don Ricke Scholarship. You will be more than content with how I will use these funds.
