The aid the CSB has given me has literally changed the course of my life. I was always aware that paying for college would be a struggle, but it wasn't until the first financial aid package came back that it really hit me how hard it would be. I had big dreams of attending the University of Virginia as a Chemical Engineering student, but it was beginning to look like I would have to shoulder massive loans each and every year in order to continue my studies. That's where the CSB changed everything. Thanks to the generous Lessans Family Scholarship and the CSB interest-free loan, I have been able to attend the school of my dreams without having to fear a future of massive loan-debt repayment. I can go to school, focus on my studies and participate in a work study program. Challenging, but very doable with focus and commitment. Without the help and support of the CSB, I would either incur huge debt or have to take periodic breaks from my education to work full time to save the money to continue. Their belief in my ability to succeed and eventually "pay it forward" carries me through the tough challenges.
