My name is Alex Walheim, and I was a 2015 recipient of the Mary Cecile Chambers Scholarship Award. Words cannot express how honored and grateful I have been for this scholarship.

Cecilio Lopez Rosales freshman Texas State University
As an immigrant and first generation student, the challenges are great, but the support I have received has been greater. Through the Mary Cecile Chambers Scholarship, I was granted the opportunity to pursue a higher education in Sociology and Spanish. Thanks to those who, like Ms. Mary Cecile Chambers, continue to impact others with the legacy they left behind, individuals like myself are able to become educated with the hope to one day be able to impact our communities in a similar manner. As time goes on, my appreciation for this blessing simply increases and with Grace, I give thanks.

I am humbly honored to receive this scholarship and I am so thankful for you. Without your financial assistance I could not attend Dallas Baptist University. You have lifted a huge burden off my shoulders and have given me an incredible opportunity to study music business.
Thank you again for your generosity. May the Lord bless you and keep you in return.

The Mary Cecile Chambers Scholarship is the means to my future. I see this scholarship as a life boat. This amazing scholarship gives me the opportunity to succeed at following my dream of helping others wherever I go as a future emergency room nurse. It is because of this scholarship that I am able to attend college, overcome my family’s financial hardships and will not be forced to put my dreams on a back-burner. A simple thank you will never be enough to truly express how grateful I am for receiving the Mary Cecile Chambers Scholarship and I will be sure to prove how much it means through my everyday effort I put into school.
Smythe Mullikin sophomore Southern Methodist University
I am extremely thankful for what this scholarship has enabled me to do with my future. When I was 2, I knew I wanted to go into engineering and one day work for NASA. Mary Cecile Chambers has allowed that dream to start to take shape. This scholarship has enabled me to be at the school I wanted and enjoy what I am passionate about (mechanical engineering and mathematics double major). It is more than a scholarship to me; it is my future. And for that, I cannot express my gratitude for your belief in me.

The Mary Cecile Chambers Scholarship has been truly incredible. Without it, I would of had to take out several bank loans to finance my college education.

I am forever grateful for this scholarship and it has had an enormous impact upon my education.
