The very letter that brought the great news to us:
Dear Bruce Stelzer,
We are happy to inform you that we, the students of Dr. Cullick’s ENG 101 class, have selected Hosea House to receive a grant of $5,000 (five thousand dollars). This grant is being funded by the Learning by Giving Foundation. Their generous support has enabled our class to learn about the good work you are doing.
Our class is part of the Mayerson Student Philanthropy Project at Northern Kentucky University. This project is made possible with the support of the Manuel D. and Rhoda Mayerson Foundation of Cincinnati, Ohio and the NKU Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement.
Normally, we would have a big awards ceremony here on the NKU campus. We would invite you to attend to receive your check and to say a few words. This year, however, due to Covid-19, the NKU campus is not able to host such an event. In its place, the NKU Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement will create a website featuring each class and the selected nonprofits. This will be like a virtual ceremony. Our class will have a page featuring our work and featuring Hosea House.
Again, we congratulate you and thank you for participating with us and the Learning by Giving Foundation. It has been a pleasure to learn about the good work Hosea House is doing. We know you will use these funds well.
With our best wishes,
The Students in Dr. Cullick’s ENG 101 Class
Jonathan S. Cullick, Ph.D. Professor of English Northern Kentucky University
