  1. This announcement has touched mine and my family’s heart.
    One of my fathers wishes was that students, outgrow their tutors. I hope that this prize will assist in this endevour and provide the necessary tools to those who win it to accomplish their dreams.
    Good luck to all candidates.

    With respect and regards ,
