L.P., Trine University - November 2018

I really appreciate the opportunity to network and advance myself in the cast metals industry as a result of the CIC. As we approach Thanksgiving, I have been reflecting on how FEF has assisted me for the past 3 years. I am thankful for the foundation and the scholarships granted to me during that time. I will graduate soon (in the coming weeks) and enter the cast metlas industry as a mechanical engineer. I do not think this opportunity would be possible without FEF.

I want to thank you and express my deepest gratitude. With your help I can take one more class this spring semester and get closer to graduating. Your help means more than words can express. Thank you.

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for having me at this year's CIC. It was a great experience and a huge exposure to multiple companies in the industry. CIC is a great venue for students looking to work in the metalcasting industry and meet new employers. I feel that the event was very professional and put on very well.

I also wanted to say thank you for allowing me to be one of the Keith Millis Scholarship recipients this year. It is a great honor and I cannot express my gratitude enough. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for me in the iron industry. I actually just accepted a position to work at Metal Technologies upon graduation and am very excited. I just wanted to send this email to let you know how honored I am to be one of the recipients and a thank you in general for the great CIC event you guys put on.

I was the recipient of an FEF scholarship this semester. I am writing to express my appreciation for your contribution to the scholarship fund for FEF. I am currently on a co-op with Metal Technologies in Auburn, IN. So far, I have really enjoyed my time working in a foundry and am excited to apply what I have been learning to the classroom. I will be returning to school to finish my mechanical engineering degree in the fall. Again, thank you so much for your contribution. Your generosity and kindness are greatly appreciated.

I wanted to give a big thank you for the scholarship I was awarded on Foundry Night at Trine University. It means a lot and will be happily used in my tuition next year. I am happy to explore more about the metalcasting indstry and hope to continue doing so in the future.

I just wanted to send a deep thank you for the scholarship that I received at foundry night on Thursday. That will help a lot in funding my Trine University education. It is because of organizations like this that gets students excited about finishing school when you realize how much debt you have already accummulated. In the future I plan to give back to the organization that helped me finish my degree.

I just wanted to send you this email to say thank you for allowing me to be one of the FEF Spring 2018 scholarship recipients at Trine University. Dr. Webber gave out the scholarships last week during our foundry night.

To give you an update on what I am doing, I will be finishing my co-op at Metal Technologies this upcoming summer. I have enjoyed my time there and am excited to be going back. I have learned much about the metals industry and am really enjoying it. Once again, thank you for the scholarship and opportunity. I am very honored as always to receive this scholarship and can not say thank you enough.

I am once again honored to receive my 3rd FEF scholarship! Dr. Webber has done great things for the foundation here at Trine University. As a senior, it is very clear that the foundry industry is the place for me after graduating. With that, I plan to donate to FEF once I have settled into my career after graduation. Please pass along my extreme gratitude to the entire team at FEF, I am thankful to have received this scholarship.

I want to take a moment and personally thank you for selecting me as a scholarship recipient. Not only will this monetary award help with the financial burden of school, but I was also recognized in front of a room full of potential employers. I hope that one day I can get a career with one of these generous companies that have allowed me to further my education. Although this is not my first time winning an FEF scholarship, I full heartedly believe that FEF/AFS is one of the key motivating factors for me to continue my passion for a career in the foundry/casting industry.
