Julie Hill’s Scholarship Statement

I graduated from ERHS in 1992, from EIU with my Bachelor of Science degree in 1996 and with my Master of Science degree in 1997.  I was fortunate enough to have parents who pushed me to attend college.  Little did I know the costs involved as I was a first generation college graduate. 

It is refreshing to see the support for our students from community groups, such as TPAA.  The amount of scholarships available to our local students provides for wonderful opportunities that they may not have experienced. 

I would like to encourage everyone who has had ample opportunities to consider assisting this new generation of students.  They will be our future physicians, entrepreneurs and teachers.  By donating to the TPAA, you are helping them prepare for the future.  Thank you!
