    2020 Legacy scholarship award winners:


    Audrey Richard

    "Dear RMGCSA Board of Directors,    
    I would first like to thank you so much for awarding me the 2020 Legacy Scholarship Award,  your generosity is sincerely appreciated! This scholarship will make a significant difference in  covering my book fees and contributing toward my tuition in the upcoming semester.
    My name is Audrey Richard and I am entering my sophomore year at Colorado School of Mines.  I am pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering, and  also competing as a student athlete on the Mines varsity volleyball team.
    My passion for math and science began when I was young, which then bloomed into a passion  for innovation and creating new things. I have always especially loved biology and learning  about complex living systems. Mines provides me with resources to further my education in  these areas, and has provided me with inspiration for a career path. One of the associate  professors in the mechanical engineering department has done extensive research in  Biomechanical and Biomedical Engineering, which has introduced me to the world of adaptive  sports prosthetics.
    I have seen firsthand how frustrating it is when a medical event impacts a person’s physical  abilities, deteriorating their passion for a sport they once loved. This is the reason why I plan to  pursue a degree in adaptive sports prosthetic design. By designing equipment so that those with  physical disabilities can still participate in activities that once gave them joy, I feel as though I  can have a genuine positive impact on the community.
    Thank you again to the RMGCSA for helping me further my education and ultimately reach my  career goals."  


    Evan McCleary

    "My name is Evan McCleary and I am going to be a senior at Kansas State University. I am majoring in Human Resource Management and Financial Management with a minor in Leadership Studies. At Kansas State, I am involved in Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, an ambassador for the Staley School of Leadership, and Homecoming Committee. After college, I am planning on getting a job in either of my majors and working abroad. Sometime after college, I would also like to start my own non-profit.
    I first off would like to start off by saying thank you for providing financial support during my college experience. This scholarship has given me opportunities to take classes and to obtain important knowledge for the future. The constant support during my time at Kansas State is something I really appreciate and will remember for the rest of my life.
    This year, the scholarship will pay for additional classes in both of my majors and allow me to graduate with both degrees. Thank you again for the financial support, I appreciate it more than you will ever know."
