My name is Julie Cooper. I am a 32 year old woman returning back to school after a thirteen year absence. After obtaining my GED at the age of 17, I ventured out into the business world. I have worked in many companies over the years, only to find myself at a dead end. As a mother to three children under the age of seven, providing my children with a quality education has always been a high priority in my home. I felt it was time to lead by example and show my children that it is never too late to better yourself or your situation. Through my hard work, I maintain a grade point average that will not only make my educational goals possible, but also, provide my children with a model of dedication and determination. This is my first semester as a Criminal Justice major at Luzerne County Community College. My goal is to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice or Social Work. I hope to utilize my education and life experiences to obtain a job working for the juvenile detention system; providing at-risk youth with the tools and support to succeed in the world today. Making a difference in the lives of the future generation that will be leading this country is a concept that is extremely important to me. This scholarship would help to ease some of the tensions that accompany the cost of my educational goals. I rely on student loans to pay for my education. This scholarship would allow me to borrow less money toward my school tuition and books. Repaying student loans is…

If I’m selected for this scholarship, this scholarship would not only help me pay my school expenses but will also give me more time to study and focus in my school work and extra activities. I will continue to apply the same diligence to my college studies as I have to this point, making education…

To the members of the Scholarship Committee,
I feel the need to request any available scholarships to assist me in furthering my education. I

best she could to help out financially, however, they still needed to take out significant loans. I know
my mother feels obligated to help me with my college expenses even though she is running our home
on her own. Any scholarships that I would receive would not only be of a great assistance to me…
