2004 Dennis Rogeski, Fort Fairfield High School
$5000 Mainely Character Scholarship
I hope you know how much it means to me to get the Mainely Character Scholarship. I worked very hard in high school to do the best I could in all of my academic courses, and I have not always come out on top, but I have tried. And I have also tried to make sure I had time to work with my friend, Chad, and with the other community service projects that I have promised to help. I really appreciate the chance I had to tell you in person about the things that are important to me.
In terms of my college planning, your scholarship is a major help; I would say it is really my ticket to Husson College. We had been waiting to make sure the finances were going to come together before we sent in my tuition deposit. Thanks to Mainely Character, my Mom was able to write my deposit check and send it in, so, Dennis F. Rogeski IS going to Husson. Thank you so much. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this scholarship.
I hope that someday, when I graduate and get a business of my own, that I can help you with this scholarship – or better yet – maybe start a new one for kids with special needs. My Nana thinks I should start a college for special needs kids! Wouldn’t that be something
