Service Above Self Scholarship Chair Ron Kyser recently received the following message from 2011 "Make A Difference" Scholarship recipient, Nikki Aniagolu.  Nikki's words do - once again - reinforce the vision of Mary Beth and Luke McCormick, and the mission of Columbus Rotary through its scholarship committee to, "Make a Difference in the Lives of Others - One Scholarship at a Time!"
Dear Mr. Kyser: 
With the onset of a New Year, and as I embark on the second semester of college at Emory University, I think back to my journey and those who have helped to get me to where I am today. I am now that much closer to the realization of my dreams, and even though there are many years of hardwork in my future, I am determined to make them happen, for there are people, such as the Rotary Club of Columbus who have believed in me enough to invest in my success and my future. I would once again like to thank you, for a scholarship that not only helped fund my way to the college of my dreams, but that has helped to instill the confidence within myself that there are people out there that believe in me and my success. I hope and I promise to make you proud! Have a Happy New Year!
Nikki Aniagolu
