Dear FUMC and Scholarship Committee,  I am writing to thank you for your generous scholarship.  I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as a reciepent of your scholarship.  This fall I will be moving to Denton, TX to study Radio, Television & Film at the University of North Texas. I am one step closer to that goal.  By awarding me this scholarship, I can focus more on the most important aspect of my school learning.  I have already started seeking out the most important aspect of my life which is fellowship and will be finding a community church as amazing as the FUMC here in Cameron.  Thanks again!  Carson Cobb


Dear Scholarship Committee, First Methodist Church,  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to so graciously receive your scholarship.  I am so excited to be attending Texas A&M University and working towards my goals.  I will look back in the ten years and see that none of this could have been possible without people like you helping our youth succeed in everything they out their minds to.  It’s a great feeling to know you can choose any school and career path and no matter will dramatically help me financially as I start my life at A&M.  Thank you again for helping not only me but all my peers succeed in the class of 2015.  Sincerely, Collin Kostroun

THANK YOU From Graduates
First United Methodist Church, Thank you so much for the bible, devotional & scholarship. I appreciate your generosity at this special time in my life.  Thank you for being such a wonderful church family & thank you for helping me continue my education at Texas A&M University!   Sincerely, Nicole Keratsopoulos
FUMC & Scholarship Committee: I really appreciate the scholarship. I am looking forward to playing football at Houston Baptist. Thank you so much for your support.  Sincerely, Colton Shuffield
Scholarship Committee and Members of FUMC,  Thank you so much for the generous scholarship. I will be attending MCC-Waco in the fall and then Baylor.   It has been a blessing growing up in this church. I appreciate all the love, support and guidance throughout my life.   Love, Elizabeth Williams

Dear First United Methodist Church,  Thank you so much for providing me with a scholarship for college.  I will have many expenses in the fall and I am certain this money will be helpful.    Sincerely, Brian Lazarow


Dear FUMC Congregation,  Although the recognition of my gratitude may be a bite late, I would now like to directly thank the church and its members for its charitable assistance towards my education.  As I’m sure you are all aware, college can be quite expensive nowadays and this scholarship will help to ease the financial burden.  More importantly though, the donation is a reminder to me that there is a tightly-knit community within a community that would like to see me and the other students do well in higher education and in later- life.  I foresee this knowledge as being very helpful to me later on, because knowing you have support makes one so much more willing to work harder and not buckle under adverse pressure.  Anyway, with that being said, I would like to conclude by saying I greatly appreciate the scholarship, support and also the beautiful bible.  Best Regards, Matthew Humble
