For three consecutive years I've been blessed to receive the Marvin D. Mills Scholarship and I've enjoyed giving my best to its purpose. I want to take this time to exhibit my gratitude for making this scholarship possible for me and other diligent students. If this scholarship did not exist, I would not have the opportunity to seek higher education. This scholarship has been instrumental not only in my life, but in my brother's collegiate career. Murray State University and the Marvin D. Mills Scholarship have proven to be more than satisfactory in both of our lives.
