2022 WEB Water Scholarship winners have been announced and letters of thanks have started coming in. Here is what the winners had to say:
Dear WEB Water Board of Directors,
I am writing to thank you for selecting me as a recipient of the Sieh, Westby, Zemlicka, Montgomery, and Hohn WEB Water Scholarship. I was thrilled to learn of my selection, and I am deeply appreciative of your support. I will be attending the University of Hawaii at Hilo in the fall, majoring in Marine Science. It will assist me in pursuing my future dream of becoming an advocate for the oceans, climate change, and deep-sea marine biology.
This scholarship will help me pay for my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time on studying, helping with research programs, and volunteering in my spare time. Thank you again for your generosity and support. I promise to work hard to succeed in my future endeavors.

Dear WEB Water,
Thank you for providing this opportunity to apply and receive this scholarship. I am very grateful for your generosity, and I will use these funds responsibly while pursuing a degree in Ag. Education
Hoven High School
Dear WEB Water,
I would like to express how honored and deeply appreciative I am for the scholarship to help with my educational expenses. I was thrilled to be selected for this scholarship, and this will certainly be instrumental as I work to finance a degree in political science and government with as little debt as possible. Without this scholarship, I would likely have to take out more money in student loans to cover the cost of my education which could harm my financial future. I am interested in pursuing education beyond my bachelor’s degree, and this will help make this goal more feasible. I appreciate your support and confidence in my education to help me achieve my career goals. After I complete my education, I look forward ways that I can pay this forward to other students and continued community involvement.
