Steve and Harriet,
Written words may not describe the honor and esteem I feel receiving this prestigious award. As I begin to see the bright future ahead, preparing for college and all the implications, i cannot help but imagine what immense achievements Dillon would be reaching during this time. All I can do is make a promise to at least attempt to arrive on the Northwestern campus with the same exuberant attitude and zealous spirit he carried. I will, however, guarantee you I will live with the same great passion for life and possiblily a larger love of learning. This award will only encourage me to further my education and succeed in anything I choose. Thank you .
I hope I may make you proud.
