I am sincerely grateful to have been selected as a recipient for the 2022 MSSA Steve Metheny Scholarship Foundation. Thank you for your generosity, which will allow me to follow my dreams. I am determined to become an Art Therapist and bring healing to the world around me. Through this award you have not only opened doors for me but are contributing to a future of world of peace through my future work. Thank you again for your thoughtful and bountiful gift.

I am so grateful for this organization and this scholarship opportunity. I am excited to start my college journey at Auburn University, where I have been selected to be a member of the on TigerEyes Danceline for halftime shows. I plan to use this scholarship money to help with the financial burden of my pursuit to study kinesiology and exercise science to become a physical therapist. It is an exciting time as I start my college journey. This is a blessing to me and my family.

First I would like to thank all of you for what you do to help rising collage students. It means a lot to me personally because I am unable to fully afford things like housing and tuition. Scholarships like this one have made it possible. I'm sorry that I will not be able to attend the awards ceremony as I will be attending Naval ROTC NSI in preparation for my freshman year. I again want to thank MSSA for helping make my college experience less stressful.. This is truly a wonderful thing MSSA does for rising college freshman!

I am honored to be a recipient of the Steve Metheny scholarship again this year. This award has allowed me to continue my pursuit of a degree at the University of Alabama where I will begin my Junior year in the fall. I am also an active member of my fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, and serve as Rush Chair. I’ve enjoyed learning more and more about the sign industry, and I find it very interesting. With this scholarship I will be able to focus on my career path. I’m thankful to you all for this opportunity.

My name is Delaney Konieczka and I am a recipient of the 2022 MSSA Steve Metheny Scholarship Foundation. I am honored and humbled to receive this scholarship. This means a lot on my journey to pursue my education in criminal justice. I have been worried about covering the costs of my tuition, and this scholarship will provide significant help in covering it. This scholarship is a huge blessing that came at perfect timing and will allow me to continue focusing on my studies.

Thank you for choosing me for the MSSA scholarship this school year. I am going onto my senior year at NC State University, majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in supply chain / operations management. This scholarship has allowed me the opportunity to attend university and has helped me and my family tremendously. Also, it has brought me so many other opportunities to which I am forever grateful for. Currently, I am interning for Volvo Trucks as a Supplier Development Engineer. The MSSA scholarship has and will open so many doors for me and everyone else who received this.
