By Aubrey Wrigley, CRG Camper and Scholarship Recipient —
When I was nearing high school graduation, I was thinking a lot about my future.
I knew I always wanted to go to college, but I didn’t know how I could afford it. I felt guilty when my parents said they’d help me with my education because it didn’t feel right—they had already paid so much for my medical bills.
I was surprised when I learned Camp Rainbow Gold offered a scholarship I could apply for as a former oncology camper to help me pay for college.
The scholarship has helped in so many ways. It has given me the chance to experience college and further my education. It helped me challenge myself. It helped me start my generals for college, after which, I was able to apply for the Dental Assisting Program. I got into the program and will be graduating in May 2020!
The scholarship has given me the chance to experience college and I will get to experience graduating from college as well.
