Thank you email to the LaGuardia Community College Foundation Scholarship Anonymous Donors.



Thank you, donors. 

I love The City University of New York. The opportunity is remarkable. I’m confident that I will turn the information I’m learning at school into millions of dollars one day and positively impact society. 

Before CUNY, I was at a dead-end welfare job program. I would sit there all day long without access to a computer, and our phones didn’t work in the office for some reason. It was torture. 

I love HRA. That job program is the pits. Hopefully, I’ll never have to go back there. I’m working hard at college, so I don’t.  

When I found out that I could attend college and still collect welfare, I jumped at the chance. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I merely have bad credit and no money. I also treat everyone with the utmost respect at all times. 

Fall 1 was my last semester at LaGuardia Community College. Starting in January, I’ll be attending Baruch College. My GPA at LaGuardia Community College is a 3.9 after 36 credits. 11 As and 1 A-. 

The staff headed by X at the scholarship office are incredible. They treat the students like gold.

The majority of people give praise to LaGuardia Community College on the web. When I see students or former students complain about the school, I can’t relate. The only explanation is that they must have treated the support team and professors at CUNY disrespectfully. 

I can not emphasize enough how marvelous an experience I had at LaGuardia Community College. 

I’m typing this thank you note on a Samsung Chromebook 4 purchased for me by the LaGuardia Community College Scholarship Office. 

I love this laptop. It’s ultra-convenient because it uses a USB-C charging port. Therefore I can use the Link.NYC kiosks in the street to charge my laptop when I don’t have access to outlets because I’m homeless. I’m also able to use mobile phone chargers to power the laptop. 

I benefited greatly from your generous donations and the support from LaGuardia Community College. Contrary to popular belief about homeless people, not one penny went to alcohol or partying, and I knocked my grades out of the park. 

Thank you for having a monumental impact on my success at CUNY. 

Have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
