What did earning the Kristen Julia Drenten Memorial Scholarship mean to you?

"Earning the Kristen Julia Drenten scholarship has meant everything to me. Her story was so touching being my brother passed away just two weeks ago. The way she was so selfless has inspired me to keep doing the same in my future. She touched the South Aiken community more than she could ever know. The financial aid is also life-changing for me, coming from a single-parent home, and not having someone to pay for my college. It will go towards my tuition or any other college fees!"
