Scholarships Overcome Tight Finances
The economic recession of the 2000’s took a toll on César Reyes, but donations have given him a second chance at the life he always wanted.
“It is my dream to be a working actor and you’ve helped me get closer to achieving that dream,” Reyes said.
Stand-out professors are what made Reyes choose U of I over the other schools that he was accepted to, and the financial aid he received sealed the deal.
“I appreciate your support and have never taken for granted that which you have given me – from helping keep my student loan amount low to providing the Hartung Theater with the equipment needed to create our art,” Reyes acknowledged. “Thank you for your generosity.”
