My school, Spalding University, allows students to apply for scholarships through the Endowment Scholarship opportunity. I am thankful that I applied and was chosen a sponsorship from the Paul Ogle Foundation from Jeffersonville, IN. This is the second year that I have been approved for a sponsorship from this foundation.
Just a little about the foundation; Paul Ogle, the donor of the foundation, wanted to attend college to become a dentist, but was able to attend because his family had some financial hardships in the 1920's. Paul Ogle volunteered for the foundation from 1980-1989 until he passed. Paul Ogle did not have any heirs, so he donated his finances to the foundation to give back to the community, allowing others, such as myself, to attend college. Paul Ogle wanted to help sponsor college students to help them achieve their academic goal since he was not able to attend college like he wanted to. The foundation does not just give to college students like myself, they also give to organizations in the Jeffersonville, IN, and the surrounding area, community.
I am thankful that my community here in IN give to people that are attending college and giving to the community to enhance our area by their sponsorships. Please remember that when you donate to organizations such as the Paul Ogle Foundation, or whatever organizations that you may have in your community, you are making the world a better place. Please take time out give back to your community AND read up on the amazing Paul Ogle Foundation here http://www.ogle-fdn.org/paul_ogle.htm .
Again another thank you to the Paul Ogle Foundation and I am hoping the best for all of you out there!
