What the Empowering Greatness Scholarship Means to Jason

I am very grateful for the Farah & Farah Empowering Greatness Scholarship. It will allow me to pay my remaining college costs and receive the education I have worked so hard to earn. As a first-generation college student, my parents have always motivated me to work hard and strive for success. As a high school student, I have excelled academically, completed over 300 volunteer service hours, and I have been very involved in extracurriculars. This scholarship proves that hard work does pay off and I look forward to continuing to strive for greatness in college and beyond.
