No Late Application Will Be Accepted
My name is Cassandra Price, and I am a senior Paralegal major at The University of Memphis. I am honored to receive the Modestine Haynes Scholarship this year. I would like to thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness in regards to this award.
I am pleased with the education I have received at The University of Memphis, as well as the invaluable learning experiences this institution has made available to me that have expanded and strengthened my education.
As I move to the next phase of my life, I will remain strongly tied to my roots at The College of University and the people, like you, who have helped shaped my collegiate experience.
Thank you for your gift and the “immeasurable” impact is has had on me.
The Modestine Haynes Scholarship helped me greatly because I didn't have the funds to attend school prior to receiving the scholarship in 2007; this is my second time receiving the funding. I received my Bachelors' degree in 2008 thanks to the scholarship which allowed me to obtain my Masters this year in May 09. I count it a blessing and a privilege for the funding in these economic times it's very beneficial to me. I couldn't have achieved what I've done these past few years without this help. Thank you very much for allowing me to accomplish what I thought was impossible. This year my journey will be complete - I'll have my Doctorate I'm reaching my goal. Thank you for believing in me.

Once again I would like to thank the AIM-IRS Scholarship committee for selecting me as a recipient of the Modestine Haynes Scholarship. The funds have been applied to my course(s) which is a blessing and I'm receiving A's & B's in my completed courses.
I've told our local Scholarship Chairperson to checkout AIM-IRS website. There are not a lot of GS-7 & below grades here in Charlotte , but hopefully the word will get out to those in larger offices because AIM-IRS is a good organization to be apart of and encourage those to apply for upcoming awards.
