Dear North West Camelid Foundation,

Hello, my name is Lilly Nizer, and I am about to complete my second year at Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine. I am writing to express my gratitude for rewarding me the $950 North West Camelid Foundation Scholarship, thank you so much.

I am originally from Canby, OR, where I was exposed to the world of camelid production medicine. Little did I know that my home town and the surrounding area is known for its camelid production operations. The three months I spent working with a mixed animal practitioner was my first exposure to small ruminant and camelid medicine. I was hooked from the start. Currently, I am pa part of the small ruminant club which is focused on providing students with opportunities outside the classroom to gain hands-on experience with small ruminants and camelids. I plan to continue learning about these animals to best serve the community I hope to return to.

Your generosity in awarding me this scholarship will have a big impact next year as my husband and I are expecting our first baby in September. This scholarship will help tremendously to keep our family from taking out excessive amounts of loans and provide us the ease-of-mind we need going into this next chapter of our life. Every contribution helps and will have a big impact on our circumstances in the future.

I truly appreciate your contribution to my education, and I look forward for the possibilities that have been opened because of your generosity. Once again, thank you.
