December 26, 2023

I am completing the nursing program at Cleveland State.  Spring will be my final semester.  I am extremely grateful for your financial support throughout my college career.  I plan to work in an underserved community practice setting after graduation.  It is one way for me to "pay it forward".  I will always remember your generosity and seek to honor it by making a difference in the lives of others.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart and best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Very truly yours,

Amelia Puin

Our CFSFAA Board Member, Kathy Taylor Moffet, and her husband, Gary, attended the Fall 2022 Brass Night Concert at the University of Akron on October 24, 2022.  They thoroughly enjoyed the talent of two of our former scholarship recipients who were part of the ensembles.  How nice that our Foundation helped support theses students' continued education in music performance!
