It’s finals week, the penultimate time when all of the hard work (or lack thereof) of the semester makes or breaks many students.
Sometimes the long road to earning a college education can seem daunting. But like most things in life, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. And remember–if it was easy, everyone would have done it.
Getting a college degree is not easy. It takes a lot of hard work to succeed. But the American Indian College Fund and its supporters are behind you, and we know you can succeed.
Michael is one of our supporters who sent a donation with a letter of encouragement for our students. Michael noted that he only finished the fifth grade. “I never made it [to college] but I know through a lot of studying and hard work for some Native American youth, they can do it, and also have fun along the way.” Michael adds that although he never finished his education or went on to college, he works in food service at S.U.N.Y. College in New York, while hoping that by doing his part to serve them they can one day go on to achieve.
We can all learn from Michael. As we continue our path to earn an education, we can ask ourselves, “What are we doing to help serve others?” Here at the American Indian College Fund we are working hard to serve our students. We hope that you, our students, will work hard to succeed, so that you can one day serve your communities.
