On Campus: Students Offer Thanks for Valentine's Day

Harper College scholarship recipients offer thanks on Valentines Day to the donors who help make their education possible.

Harper College scholarship recipients this month penned heartfelt Valentine's to people they'd never even met: the donors whose contributions helped fuel their academic success.

One grateful recipient drove out of her way on a day that she didn't have classes to make sure her valentine was signed, sealed and delivered; others noted that the scholarships enabled them to stick with college. "One of the most important things in my life is my education, and I have been very fortunate to erceive this scholarship," one recipient wrote. "I look forward to my future."

The thank-you card effort was organized by the College's Educational Foundation, with an eye on celebrating those who make a difference in the lives of Harper students.
