Beverly Harkness, Mother of 2010 Scholarship Winner – Letter to BBYF

Ms. Cooper,

I am the mom of one of your scholarship winners for the Class of 2010.  I wanted to follow up and let you know how he did his first year of college.  Ryan ended the year with a 3.8 GPA and made an amazing transition from high school to college.  He is attending Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma, where he is also playing football.

As a parent, I wanted to thank you for making an investment in my child’s future.  I think it is important for your organization to know that they made a wise investment and Ryan absolutely loves being in college.  Thanks to the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation,  my son has a solid foundation after his first year and we look for great things from him in the future.  Words cannot express how appreciative we are for the scholarship that he received.  I know that Mr. Bragan is looking down and smiling today.

Thank you,
Beverly Harkness
