“If I could talk to Ted Nolan for a minute, I give him a hug because the presentation was very emotional. I would tell him that he really has made a difference in the world and he should be proud of himself. He’s a role model for all aboriginals as well as human beings."

The zhoonyaa I received from the Ted Nolan Foundation/Rose Nolan Scholarship was very helpful and took a lot of stress off me at that time. I am so grateful to their organization for the opportunity to apply for this prestigious award. If it wasn’t for opportunities such as this I don’t know what students would do.

I hope everyone at the Ted Nolan Foundation and in the Nolan family understand the genuine difference the scholarship makes. Thank you
