"Interest in the Harvard Scholarships reached an all time high this year and that made the selection process for the three scholarship recipients a very difficult task for the committee. We were fortunate to have many qualified and deserving candidates, and hope that those who were not selected will reapply in the future."

-Gayle Mabery, ACMA President
