Student seeks donations for workshop
Placeholder Image
Dear Editor: My name is Allison Gray. I am a sophomore at Bryan County High School. I have been nominated to represent my family, school and community as a member of the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Atlanta.
I was nominated due to my outstanding academic achievement and my potential to be a leader. This program will be an excellent experience for me to endure; I will be interacting with doctors and nurses as they go do different types of procedures. This program will teach me about the medical field I choose.
As I decide to further my interest in the medical field and reach my career goal, this program will enable it to happen. I am an honor roll student who maintains a 3.5 or higher GPA.
I am writing  today because this is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Just imagine if you were in my position, and could not attend for the lack of money.
My participation in the Forum on Medicine depends on if I can raise the estimate of $3,000. I know this seems like a lot, but it goes to a great cause. The tuition fee is $2,560, the travel to and from Atlanta with a one night hotel is about $250, and out of pocket money for lunches and incidentals is around another $250. I am looking for money from family, friends, sponsors, fundraisers and business leaders. The money for tuition is needed by April 13, 2010 so I need it by the due date of April 16, 2010. Please make all checks and Money Orders payable to the National Youth Leadership Forum for Allison Gray.
Please send any checks, money orders and cash donations to my home address: Allison Gray, 706 Mannie English Rd., Ellabell, GA 31308, so that I may forward these contributions to the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine.
I will greatly appreciate each and every contribution from each sponsor.  If you need more information, please contact me at my home number (858-4133, or my cell number,  271-8587, or you may contact the Forum on Medicine directly at (703) 584-7240. Thank you.

Allison N. Gray
