Before I became an impossible teenager, I was daddy’s little girl. I could count on him to take my side in any argument and he was always there to save me when I bit off more than I could chew. Most importantly, he made me feel as though I could do anything. Looking back, I realize that he made many personal sacrifices to make sure I had everything I needed or wanted. Instead of buying his dream car, he put that money into guitar and piano lessons for me. When he considered taking golf lessons, he put them on hold so I could attend a vocal competition in California with my school. I’m sure there were other dreams he put on hold, as well, to ensure his family was happy and secure.
Father’s Day is just around the corner and I would give anything to be able to thank my dad for everything he has done for me, but unfortunately, he passed away several years ago. If you know a dad who has put his educational dreams on hold and is now considering returning to school or even attending college for the first time, be sure to let him know how much he means to you and show him some support by sharing these scholarships with him.
