I want to extend my most sincere gratitude to the Harkavys
for the KENNETH L. AND LORRAINE M. HARKAVY SCHOLARSHIP, with which they have blessed my family and me.
There exist no words that can express how thankful I am for your generosity.
I promise to do all I can to make the most good from your gift,
as I aspire to share with others the compassion and kindness that you have shared with me.
I am more encouraged than ever to continue pursuing my love for medicine
and am eternally grateful for your support and belief in my pursuit.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
