Name: Katherine Krieger
Comment: Dear Zonta Club of Kenmore,

My name is Katherine Krieger and I was a recipient of your 2010 Academic Scholarship. This scholarship covered the cost of my books for all four years of my undergraduate studies.

In May of this year, I received my Masters of Arts in Higher Education Administration from Geneva College. Since that time, I have returned to Buffalo and begun working as the Coordinator for Membership and Administration with the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to your Membership and Board for your investment in my Education.

Grace and Peace,

Katherine Krieger
