I offer you my sincerest gratitude upon granting me your support. I am Miguel Avalos, the proud recipient of the North County Group Sierra Club San Diego Scholarship. Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated and valued. Your charitableness is a blessing and I am honored to even be considered for the award.
Your financial support and ideology guide my education. As a civil engineering major, I am an advocate for the conservation of the natural environment. As the treasurer and secretary of MiraCosta College’s Design Club, I promote progressive ideas to solve current environmental issues. It is philanthropic organizations such as yours that allow young minds like mine to develop and mature by granting communities your support and promoting humanitarianism. My goals are not much different; with an engineering degree, I plan to provide proper infrastructure in impoverished areas around the world while sustaining the environment. Growing up in Mexico, I dreamt of modernizing the very towns I lived in. Now, with your kind generosity, that is a possibility.
I always believed education to be the key to success. Support like yours brightens our future. By granting students with the financial means, the Sierra Club continues to encourage individuals and intellects to challenge themselves and achieve greatness as they pursue their dreams and accomplish their civic duties. I have always strived for greatness in my academic career and your confidence further inspires me. I am delighted at the opportunity and am extremely grateful for your generosity. Thank you for believing in me.
