“One quote I remember hearing from my former high school football coach that has stuck with me ever since he said it is, ‘No one is perfect, but if you strive for perfection in everything you do, you might just achieve excellence.’ I took that quote to heart with everything I do. Getting this scholarship has made it possible for me to continue striving for perfection in the industry of fluid power. Thank you for this scholarship; it is a great help for me as a college student.”
