Dear Lacours/ciere Society,

I am writing to thank you for generously offering your $500 Lacours/ciere Society Scholarship. It was an honor to be selected as the recipient.
Currently, I am double-majoring in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Washington State University. I plan to first pursue a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and then pursue a career in embedded systems design.

Your scholarship has been tremendous help for me in school, because I have barely been able to take care of tuition and car repairs. Now I am able to focus on school without having to worry about financial problems.

Thank you for your generosity and support. With degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, I will have the chance to give back to the community through my research and inventions.
