Hi, my name is John Klingensmith, and I am a Junior at Frederick High school. I am a very devoted student that takes my academics very seriously, and I love helping my peers. I also volunteer and teach children at my Church at LifeFellowship Frederick every Sunday.
I am taking advanced classes such as AP Biology and Medical Terminology, and plan to get enough college credits by the time I graduate to have a year and a half completed in college. In college, I will be in the medical field and become a Forensic Pathologist.
I also have an accumulative GPA of 3.982 and have won several academic letters and awards. Recently I received a letter informing me that I am invited to the National Academy of Future Physicians to represent Frederick High School’s Senior Class in Boston, Massachusetts. I will receive the Congress of Future Medical Leaders Award of Excellence. During the conference I will: meet some of the greatest minds in medical technology and several Winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, observe surgery and ask questions, discuss various topics in medical developments or dilemmas, and earn college credit for every day I participate!
However, in order to attend, I need to raise $3,500. That includes flight, hotel, and tuition to attend with my parents. The deadline for the full amount due is November 20th.
I am writing this letter to humbly ask for your financial help. I hope that you will see that this is a good investment in, not only me, but also FHS and the Carbon Valley. Any financial gift is appreciated and I thank you, ahead of time for your consideration of my request.
I am honored to be considered for this award and representing my Senior class at Frederick High School. Going would give me so many opportunities in life: the Congress would write letters of recommendation to colleges I apply to and the earned college credit would help a lot more. Having this award would also be placed on my resume. I have much ahead of me and getting an early start would be so helpful, as well as having the support of so many would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, John W. Klingensmith
