Dear Mason Citizens:
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone in Mason who donated to the dual credit tuition program as well asthe members of the Mason County Child Welfare Board for sacrificing their time on the hamburger luncheon fundraiser. I have just started my senior year at Mason High School, and I have targets I hope to reach for my future. I hope to attend Texas State University or Texas Tech University in the fall of 2014. Subsequently, my goal in college is to study fashion merchandising and business and later become successful in the fashion industry in my adulthood.
I understand the amount of generosity that comes out of the donations given, and I am very thankful for this altruistic act. I feel that the donations give better opportunities for not only me but for others as well to continue receiving a great education. This semester, I am taking six dual credit classes, which adds up to a total of $1,620.
My mom and I are still pinching ourselves over the fact that we are living in a house of our own thanks to Habitat for Humanity. Although times do get hard, we maintain a positive outlook because of our amazing community. It is a true blessing to be living in such a loving town with a school that takes any chance to make sure we have the opportunity to take these dual credit classes. So again, thank you to everyone in this small-town of Mason who donated to the dual credit tuition program. If there are any community members who would like to contribute to the program, the mailing address for the Mason County Child Welfare Board is PO Box 475, Mason, TX 76856.
