Recipient testimonials

“Thank you so much! This is amazing news! I am in my final year of the BSN program, and this will be a huge help to reach the finish line.”



“Words cannot express how truly grateful and appreciative I am to have been selected to receive two Scholarships. The past two years have been very challenging for. Having lost everything, the idea of going back to school was incomprehensible. Having nothing but our faith, what we thought was impossible became attainable. Because of your generosity, my tuition is paid, I can buy books, I have assistance with commuting expenses, and food during school days. This has blessed us immensely and I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.”



“I want to express my sincere appreciation for being awarded a Scholarship. I am so grateful to be chosen! I wish to thank you for this great opportunity! This will be a huge help in my journey to become a Respiratory Therapist!”



“I’m deeply honored and extremely grateful to have been chosen for the Scholarship. I cannot express my overwhelming gratitude enough to your Foundation. Because of this scholarship I will be able to focus on my studies without having to wonder how my financial obligations will be met. This is a huge step forward for me and is a constant reminder that anything is possible. This is certainly a blessing for our family.”



“I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for making this scholarship possible. I am deeply appreciative of your trust and support. The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time on studying and completing my bachelor’s degree. Thank you again for your financial assistance and investment in my future.”



“I am genuinely honored and grateful to be chosen as a recipient for the Fall semester. I recently graduated from the Darton College of Health Professions, with my Associate of Science in nursing. I begin the RN-to-BSN program this upcoming fall in hopes to graduate with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing Spring 2023. This generous award will allow me to focus on my academics and not the burden of school expenses. I will always be thankful for this extraordinary reward that will open doors for many opportunities ahead.”



“I would like to express my gratitude and thanks to the foundation for awarding me the scholarship. I’m not used to being chosen for things and spent most of my life with feelings of inadequacy and not feeling worthy of success. There have been many stresses upon entering my program, and one of them has been the financial issues I’ve encountered. However, because of the foundation awarding me this scholarship, that weight has been relieved. You have not just awarded me a scholarship, but you have shown me that miracles do happen every day, and that change is possible, even for someone like me. Thank you once again for your decision to award me this scholarship.”



“I am honored to receive this Scholarship. Thank you so much for considering me to be the recipient. As I continue to complete my education at the Darton College of Healthcare Professionals, I will be forever grateful for your thoughtful gift. Because of your scholarship, I am able to cover the cost of tuition. I literally did not know how I was going to pay for my fall tuition and thought I would have to sit out this upcoming term. Thank you again for your thoughtful gift!”



“I am honored to have been awarded this scholarship. Thank y’all so much and I truly appreciate your generosity. This award will help me continue my education and achieve my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I am so excited to begin my career as a nurse in Albany and hope that in the future I can help contribute to the success of future students.”



“I would like to extend a huge thank you to the Darton Foundation Board for selecting me again this year for a scholarship! It is an honor to be awarded these funds and it will make my senior year much less stressful. Thank you again for everyone involved with the decision!”



“I am genuinely honored and grateful to be chosen as a recipient for this Scholarship. I begin my fourth semester of nursing school this next spring and this generous award will allow me to focus on my academics and not the burden of school tuition. This amazing scholarship is huge for my family and me. Without this opportunity students, like myself, would find it very difficult to navigate through a costly semester. Thank you.”



“I am so grateful to be chosen as one of this Spring recipients for a scholarship. Thanks to the Harold and Sarah Wetherbee Scholarship and the Darton Foundation, I’ll be able to dedicate more time to my education this semester without needing to take out another student loan or work extra shifts at my job. I’m planning to pursue a career as an Occupational Therapy Assistant and know that this support is an investment in my future. Thank you again for your gift!”



“Thank you so much for awarding me the Harold and Sarah Wetherbee Scholarship for the Spring. I am currently in my second semester of the BSN program at ASU. This award is a blessing, and I greatly appreciate it.”
