I am very grateful for the ICE Scholarship. It has given me the opportunity to play hockey while attending Guerin College Prep High School. I graduated high school in May 2011 with a great education and I am now attending Western Illinois University. I am looking forward to my future and I am excited about helping to keep this program going for other children who also deserve an opportunity to get a good education.

I have been receiving the ICE scholarship since my Freshman year of high school and am now about to start my second year of college at Southern Illinois University. Not only has receiving this scholarship given my family a sense of security, but it has also allowed me to expand my knowledge by allowing me to go to a better school where I could get a good education. Due to receiving the ICE scholarship I have also learned to be more responsible in the sense that I keep my grades up and work harder to make sure that I meet the standards required to maintain the scholarship.
