Thank you very much for the Belva Waite Memorial Scholarship! These funds will help me greatly as I further my education. I will be attending Roberts Wesleyan College in the fall to pursue a degree in childhood and special education. I can’t wait to have a classroom of my own someday and educate the next generation of world-changers. I appreciate all that you do for students like me. – Alyssa

We would like to thank you for the $600 donation for the National Technical Honor Society; with this donation we are able to induct 17 new members.

Your generous donation was greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Andrea Hlasnick   NTHS Advisor

Dear ACAF Dollars for Scholars Board,

Thank you for the ACAF General Scholarship of $1000. This scholarship will help me further my education to study Early Childhood/Special Education at St. Bonaventure University. I can’t wait to become a teacher and tell kids to apply for scholarships at ACAF. Thank you again for helping students like me go to college.
Sincerely, – Heidi

The Wellsville Montessori School strives to offer quality preschool and daycare programs to the Wellsville area. Your recent donation will help to improve the security of our building, keeping the children in our care safe and their parents’ minds at ease. Thank you again for your generosity.

“Again, I would like to thank the Scholarship Committee for helping me with this opportunity. To give you some updates. I am still a NCAA athlete on the crew team and on the rocket team. We are putting the finishing touches on the rocket we are going to take to the national competition. This coming semester I have decided to try another company instead of going back to Boeing. I will be building rockets for Space X out in Los Angeles! I am very excited, as Space X is the dream company for all aero/astro space engineers! I recently met Elon Musk, the founder of PayPal, Solar City, Tesla Motors and Space X while he was a guest speaker here at MIT! I also will be working in a lab this coming semester with Buzz Aldrin!

So things here are very exciting! I have included the following link as I was just chosen as a Burchard Scholar!?

Thanks again!
