Hunter Warwick- 2015
“One of the proudest moments of my life was when I heard my name called to be the 2015 recipient of the Connie and Ricky Sparks Memorial Scholarship. This award not only gives me a boost in confidence in myself as I move forward into college, but is also a huge financial help help as I further my education. It is inspiring to me that out of such tragedy can come a blessing to many people before me, and many people after. I am honored to be a member of the Sparks scholarship family, and hope that one day I'll have the opportunity to pay it forward and make the same type of difference in someone else's life”

"The Sparks scholarship has helped me tremendously! In more ways than one can possibly think of. Not only am I the second recipient in my family, but I am also a proud graduate striving likewise to further my education. Financially this scholarship has worked wonders in paying off a third of my tuition. It is an honor, more than a privilege, and that of a blessing to be the 2014 Sparks scholarship recipient. Truly a life changing event, as well as a moment in history I will cherish forever and always."

"The scholarship has truly been a blessing in my life. It has helped provide money for my collegiate education that my parents did not have and I would not have received from elsewhere. Most important it has provided a life long relationship with the Sparks family. Their support and words of encouragement are always available and much appreciated."

“It has been a long road of ups and downs to be where I am today. I thank God I have been blessed with people that have been put in my path to help me with studies and other needs. Thank you for all your support.”
