Letter: Grateful for scholarship

The following letter was addressed to the Alpine Bank Latino/Hispanic Scholarship.

I am writing to thank you for your generous $4,400 Alpine Bank Latino/Hispanic Scholarship. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of your scholarship.

My major will prepare me to become an accountant and computer programmer. I am going to Colorado Mountain College and will be a full-time student. I am going to graduate from Aspen High School on June 4.

I am very active in St. Mary Catholic Church. I volunteer and serve as an altar boy and at special events like St. Patrick’s Day dinner and anytime that music is required.

By awarding me the Alpine Bank Latino/Hispanic Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community like Alpine Bank does.

David Avila
