It is truly an honor to receive the Tal and Mary Joy Anderson Family Inspiring Alumnus Award. My scholarship to Sts. Peter and Paul School was a tremendous blessing. Sts. Peter and Paul is such an important part of the South Omaha community and Sts. Peter and Paul School set the foundation for me to learn, know, live, and love my culture. I am looking forward to beginning classes in the fall at Creighton University, and a scholarship from the Heider Family Foundation (also a donor to the Children’s Scholarship Fund) will pay for half of my tuition as I study dentistry. With gratitude from me and my family.
