Dear Judge Mablean and Members of the Scholarship Committee,
It is with a heart full of gratitude and appreciation that I write this thank you note. I want to thank you all profusely for the scholarship award to me and the great work that you do especially for our community. I am a recent recipient of your scholarship on June 17th when you awarded me a $1,000 scholarship to Howard University. I was pleasantly surprised to receive the invitation to attend the award ceremony and to be in the midst of such wonderful people and such a well-orchestrated event. It is such an honor to finally meet you, Judge Mablean. May God bless you for your abundant heart.
I traveled to Washington DC in August to start my next phase of life at Howard University. I will eternally remember your grace and help when it was needed and you provided. I will make you proud of me and I went to Washington DC with the understanding that when "you are up, you reach down to pull someone else up".
Thank you for the delicious brunch. Thank you for the dignitaries, guests and notable celebrities like yourself, Ms. Vivica A. Fox, Dawn Lewis and more. May God continue to bless you in all your future endeavors.
PS: I would like to volunteer at next year's brunch, if possible.
Yours sincerely and with heartfelt appreciation,
2012 Howard Scholarship Recipient

Hey Judge Mablean. I know it's been a while since we've last spoken. I am sending this email to give you an update about my college experience thus far. At the start of the fall semester I joined a few clubs and volunteered in the surrounding area of my school. finished out the semester with a 3.2 GPA. Amid some very unpleasant events on campus including a murder and some on campus robberies, I continued to keep a level head. Being in this culture rich environment has brightened my outlook on different lifestyles. I am very privileged considering that I come from a underprivileged city. Now I am in the beginning of the Spring semester and am starting out strong. I am still participating in several clubs. I look forward to filling out plenty of more scholarship, job, and internship applications for the communications, public relations, and English fields for the upcoming summer.
Thank you again for everything you've done. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
