FOSSI Corporate Supporters

Receiving this scholarship makes me feel as though I can do anything. I have only believed in myself to a certain extent and I really did not think I could achieve something so big. This scholarship has taken a financial burden off my parents and has given me hope for my future. Now I truly believe there is no mountain too high for me to climb.
Brooke Davis, The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff
