Each year I have the privilege and honor of interacting with highly motivated individuals representing the newest generation of conifer enthusiasts.
This year was very special. Cole Hamilton received our Scholarship. Cole is only the second undergraduate to receive our scholarship. Cole will be using the scholarship to help pay for his expenses entering his Senior year at Western Kentucky University. His Bachelor’s will be in Agronomy & Plant Science.
Cole recently sent me a letter addressed to the Membership of ACS. This young man impresses on so many levels. He is bright, courteous, and in a high- tech era of emails, took the time to draft a personal letter of thanks to ACS.
I usually further describe what our new scholarship winner does in these scholarship announcements. This time, I am going to let Cole’s letter speak for itself. Enjoy and feel a little bit of gratitude for helping make this scholarship possible to a very deserving young man.
