"I am teaching today because of the scholarships I received while at Tarleton. I saw each scholarship as a direct investment in my life as a teacher. That investment will continue to grow as I invest in each of my students in the classroom. It is a gift that keeps on giving."
- Candace Hoggard
"It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that I will have a minimal amount of debt to repay. I have the scholarships I received at Tarleton to thank for that."
- Amy Hudson
"During my time at Tarleton, I was able to gain key leadership skills, such as staff management, presentation and public relation skills, that I use every day in my current career.
