Testimonial from past scholarship recipients.
During my Sophomore year of college, I was honored to receive the Tom Forester Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship significantly impacted many aspects of my life including my financial ability to pay for my tuition at UNLV; my ability to refocus my attentions to my studies (as being a math major can be an arduous task); and the enhancement of my social skills through involvement in school programs and clubs.
All of these factors have attributed to my determination in finishing my degree and becoming an actuary.
Thank you to the Tom Forster Memorial Scholarship and the team at Markel for providing me with the opportunity to focus on school, investing in my education and bettering myself.
During my Sophomore year of college, I was honored to receive the Tom Forester Memorial Scholarship, which significantly helped me pay for my tuition at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN). This scholarship had a significant impact on my education overall. With less of a financial burden, I was able to put a higher level of focus and concentration into my education. This scholarship allowed me to be a more enthusiastic student, which resulted in making the Dean's List for each of my remaining semesters at CSN, even gradating with High Honors in Business Administration.
The Tom Forester Memorial Scholarship furthered me along in my professional career as well. After graduating with my degree from CSN, I became a licensed Property & Casualty Insurance Agent in the state of Nevada. I am more than appreciative for FirstComp's investment in my education, which has helped more than words can explain.
