Dear Nicholas (from Menomonee Falls):
It is with extreme pleasure that I have enclosed a check for $1000.00 to help you in your pursuit of a college education. There were mere decimal points separating each of the finalists for the 2013 Foundation scholarships. We did not have a policy in effect to deal with TCI family applicants at the time of evaluation.
We now have the policy in effect and due to an upturn in our investments we would like to offer you this scholarship at this time. It is very important for the Foundation to honor the family members of our faithful TCI members. We had never figured this happening in our scholarship criteria.
I sincerely hope that we will find your name on a club roster some day. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Yours in tallism,
TCI Foundation Chair
