During the ten years of my education through undergraduate, dental, and orthodontic school, the scholarship opportunities offered by the Lexington Community Foundation have helped every step of the way. My classmates in the various programs were in awe of the support that my hometown provided for my future career as an orthodontist. With the ever-increasing interest rates of student loans, these scholarships have significantly decreased my financial burden. The aid of these scholarships encouraged me to continue on with my education past undergraduate school since they allowed me to lessen my anxiety about the cost of tuition. Without them, I would be looking at a much larger debt that would take several more years of income to pay off. I’m so thankful and proud that I grew up in such a wonderful city with members that cherish the education of its students.
