Former scholarship recipient thanks Del Mar Rotary for current success

By Emily Figueiredo, Club Publicity Chair

Each year, the Del Mar Rotary Club supports local, ambitious teens with college scholarships. The club was recently pleased to receive a letter from a past recipient, expressing gratitude for what the scholarship has helped her accomplish.

The former student writes, “I am a former recipient of the Del Mar Rotary Club Bill Merrit Memorial Scholarship for the academic year 2007-2008. As I was cleaning, I recently found the reward letter I had received almost 7 years ago and wanted to again thank the Rotary Club for the scholarship. As I look back at the difficulties my family faced after losing both my parents before starting college and having to work and worry about whether or not I could stay in school because of financial difficulties quarter by quarter at UCSD, I continue to be grateful for the scholarship that made it possible for me to stay in school. I am glad to say that I was able to graduate from UCSD with a Bachelor of Science in Physiology and Neuroscience and then went on to complete a Masters of Science in Biology. I am now in pharmaceutical research at Vertex Pharmaceuticals. Thank you for being a part of making this all possible and please forward my thanks to the Del Mar Rotary Club as well.”
