Dear Mr. Glenn Canuel,
Thank you so much for your generous scholarship. I'm Samuel Pei, a recent graduate from R.A. McMath Secondary school who plans on attending the University of Waterloo. Needless to say, studying on the other side of the country will be a significant burden on my family's financial situation. I thank you once more for helping to alleviate some of this pressure and thereby allowing me to further my pursuit of higher education.
