"The George Snow scholarship, and Tim especially, gave me feelings of worth, value, and improved self -esteem. Tim and his aunt came to my home and bought one of my paintings when I was a senior in high school and that made me feel like a real artist. When I got the scholarship I had more confidence in my abilities and peace of mind that the financial burdens of a private university were diminished. I felt validated and powerful in a way that I had not felt before. I still have the picture of my guidance counselor and me from the Palm Beach Post at the awards dinner hanging up in my classroom. When I feel doubtful of my abilities, I think about this achievement."
