LETTER FROM BRITTANY
Martha Mason Hill Memorial Scholarship
Attn: Ms. Jan Hatchette
Dear Ms. Hatchette,
It is with sincere heartfelt thanks and gratitude that I write this letter to the Martha Mason Hill Foundation. I am most appreciative for the financial support that you provided me to assist with my tuition for the 2007-2008 school year. I had an excellent freshman year and did not expect for it to end so soon. The confidence that you have placed in me is humbling, to say the least
A letter from
2007 Scholarship Recipient
Dear Members of Martha Mason Hill Memorial Foundation:
I recently graduated cum laude from Morgan State University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Architecture and Environmental Design. I am also excited to share with you that I have been accepted into the Master's of Art program for Historical and Sustainable Architecture at New York University this fall. It is a nine month program which will allow me to achieve my Master's in half the time of a traditional degree. In addition I will be spending the first six months of the program in London learning about adaptive reuse and taking advantage of the many other architectural resources the UK has to offer. My family is well and they continue to support me in all that I do. I can say with assurance that your scholarship was very beneficial to me. It allowed me to have some experiences that I would have otherwise not been able to afford and I am truly appreciative of the many opportunities that have come my way. I was able to travel and study abroad in India, Italy and Greece while in undergraduate school and it truly changed my life and perspective on the world.
It was lovely to hear from you.
