Scholarships play a vital role in making higher education a reality for many students by alleviating some of the financial pressure students face. Your gift to the UCO Annual Fund makes a powerful statement of encouragement and belief in their future. One of the students who has benefited from the UCO Annual Fund is Trey Guthrie, a senior majoring in Industrial Safety. Trey was preparing to take a year off school, because he didn't have enough money to enroll in his last semester. Through the Annual Fund, the UCO Foundation was able to give Trey a scholarship to move him one step closer to graduating. "The Annual Fund Scholarship has made it to where I can focus on my studies and finally be able to apply for graduation. It is nice to know that there are donors out there who care about my future and making sure that I graduate," Trey said.
Because of your gift to the UCO Annual Fund, Trey will be walking in his cap and gown this December.
