Recipients' Gratitude

Samuel Poryanda '16

"My mom has been a huge inspiration to me and is living proof that life is whatever you make of it. She has struggled to pay bills throughout my entire life and is forced to work multiple jobs. This scholarship has allowed me to attend Holy Cross. I know that I must keep working up to my potential not only to maintain this scholarship but also to make my family and, most importantly, my mother proud."

"[The scholarship] has helped me to attend Holy Cross at a price that my family can afford. If I hadn't received the scholarship, I could never have chosen to attend Holy Cross."

"Over the years, I have wondered how I could repay my folks for all the sacrifices they made to send me to Holy Cross, while still giving back to the place that transformed me. I decided to honor them and all the time they did without by naming a Holy Cross Fund Scholarship after them."
