Thank You!

Carroll is an excellent investment. Private contributions allow the Foundation to help students balance the demands and responsibilities of full- or part-time jobs, college coursework and family life. The students we help are all so different, from young moms, to returning adults searching for a new career, to recent high school graduates.

A scholarship means many things to them - less financial stress, the knowledge that someone has faith in their abilities, and an incentive to keep trying, even on days when nothing seems to go right.

Your gifts help Carroll students transform their lives. Thank you!

The Foundation Office regularly receives letters from students expressing their gratitude for scholarships. We've been touched by these heartfelt thank you notes and are delighted to share some excerpts with you.


Jacqueline F. Symonds recipient of the Arthur and Lois Goodman Scholarship in memory of nurse, Ella Zimmerman

“It is a true blessing to have received this scholarship. Contributions, such as yours, allow me to further my education and realize my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse. As a single mother of two young children, going back to school has been a challenge and it wouldn't be possible without the help of this scholarship. I thoroughly enjoy and place tremendous value in the education I'm receiving. Carroll's supportive staff and caring professors have given me the confidence, knowledge and skills that I need to be successful not only as a student and future Registered Nurse, but in all of my future endeavors. This learning experience is invaluable to my and my children’s future.”


Melissa PappasMelissa Pappas recipient of the Burrier Family Scholarship

“I am a new stay at home mom to a wonderful five-month-old little boy. He means everything to me, and I would like to finish my degree to give him the best life he deserves. I have always strived hard in school, and now he is a greater reason to strive for the best. He will one day see what I have accomplished and hopefully strive for the best in his education.”


Stephanie PhillipsStephanie Phillips recipient of the Kimberly Reals Memorial Scholarship

"I plan to receive my associate's degree in graphic design from Carroll and then possibly transfer to Towson University. Receiving this scholarship will help me transfer after two years because it provides the extra financial support I need to afford my Carroll education. I plan to participate in the ski club, play intramural sports and possibly participate in the graphics club. I would like to be involved as much as possible so I can take full advantage of everything that's offered and enjoy my time at Carroll.”


Justin Tunzi recipient of the National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors – Carroll/Howard Scholarship

“I decided to enroll at Carroll after working a few years in the construction business. I am now a full-time Carroll student and plan to transfer into an Engineering program at a state university. I'm anticipating graduating with an associate's degree in math and science in May 2012, which I'm certain will to transfer well to my desired schools so I may continue my education. The coursework is challenging, but I am determined to thrive in my studies and be successful. I am a hard worker, and I instill this characteristic in my studies as I continue down the road to success.”
