During the Holiday Season, current scholarship recipients and student donors share their expressions of gratitude for alumnae and student support.
On the eighth day of giving, meet Tyra Seals, C'2018. She is a first-year student, Art History major from Lawrenceville, GA. This year, Tyra is a recipient of Harold Hirsch Scholarship.
Tyra shares why scholarship support has assisted her financially as a students, "My family knew that they would not be able to financially support my education. Determined to go for the gold regardless of financial hardship, I have been awarded the Harold Hirsch Scholarship to cover my remaining balance for the fall semester and I couldn't be more grateful. This alone is my confirmation that I am meant to be at Spelman! Financial gifts often go to blessed hard-working students in tough situations as myself."
This year, all gifts designated to the Annual Fund will provide Spelman with the resources needed to support scholarships, sustain retention and allow students to complete their Spelman education. You can help support Tyra and other students by making a gift on this eighth day of 12 Days of Giving. Join us today and Make a Gift!
Gifts to Spelman College through the mail or online must be postmarked or submitted by Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. to count for the 2014 tax year.
