"Thank you AIGCS! You guys are amazing and helped me through the scary journey of navigating college and figuring out how to become a young professional. We couldn’t do it without your help. Christa you were always a phone call away and I must have called you a dozen times. It was your amazing work that made the difference. “Your generosity is like an investment with compound interest, it inspires us to give what we can and keeps growing exponentially at the same time. I pray we will all keep loving people with the same passion that you all have. The American Indian Graduate Center Scholars is a true role model for the 21st century college grad! Thank you!”
