I was honored to receive the Optimist scholarship. Thank you so much for your incredible generosity. It is a great honor to be selected for this award. I will be starting college at UC Berkeley in the fall, and the scholarship will help pay for my expenses. Thank you again,

I am writing on behalf of Sierra House

our school community, and we are truly grateful for your contribution.

Over the past 34 years that I have been a teacher in the Lake Tahoe Unified School District, we have experienced nothing but your generosity when we have been in need of your help. Time and again, you have come to our aid and we are so thankful and appreciative for your assistance.
