"The John Panamarioff Sr. scholarship has been helping me advance my education, albeit at a slow rate, for the last decade as my career path has slowly changed over time. As a first time applicant I was able to spend some time learning what it was that I wanted to do post-high school. Over the last several years, as my career has allowed, I have been able to apply for educational funding through ONC, as needed, that has helped me see the potentials on the horizon ahead of me. Without the support of ONC and the John Panamarioff Sr. scholarship I can definitively say that my career would not be nearly as successful as it has been. Quyanaa to the board, as well as the shareholders who support this program. It means a lot to me, and many other shareholders I have spoken with."
