Buckeyes and Friends,
We have only 4 days left until the end of the campaign. We have done an amazing job- as of today, we only have $1,350 left to raise. We can do this.
Remember- if we reach our goal of $8,400 we get to send FOUR students. If we just raise the remaining $1,350, a very kind donor will double our fund. Please- share with your friends this weekend why this campaign matters to you and why you hope they'll give.
One of the scholarship recipients last summer, Tinae Bluitt, shared this reflection for those that gave to last year's campaign immediately following her DC summer:
I am still overwhelmed and my head is still spinning. It all went too fast and almost felt like a dream, but in a good way. On the ride back to Ohio, I couldn't help but reflect on how lucky I was to go through this summer. I tried to digest everything that happened this past summer in a few hours. I have never been challenged so much and had the time of my life all in just a few short months. I interned at a federal agency working to improve the access to a quality education, wrote a 20 paged policy paper on the school to prison pipeline focusing on Black males, sat in on a filibuster, took a tour of the White House West Wing, went to a National Convention for Black Journalists, met OSU alumni from all different walks of life, got close to 28 of my classmates, and still managed to have a good time and sight see.
Because of you, I was able to be exposed to a life I never knew existed. I was able to grow, learn, and be challenged every step of the way. I know what it means to be a true public servant. None of this was possible without you. I am truly grateful.
Together, we can make an experience like the one above happen for FOUR students.
Help us reach our goal- spread the word this weekend!
