Quotes from Scott McIntosh, Scholarship Winner:
"Through my homeschool education I gained a Christ-centered and well-balanced worldview, an ability and desire to learn independently and a perspective on education that extended far beyond the walls of any classroom. "I really appreciate how experiential my homeschool education was and found the ability to learn through a variety of hands-on experiences to be excellent preparation for success in college and beyond. The Sonlight curriculum and scholarship were both very influential in my academic and spiritual growth and development."
