"I am truly honored to have been selected as one of the recipients of the John Culver Wooddy Scholarship. I'd like to thank the entire Actuarial Foundation for their support, not only for myself, but for all of the young actuaries that they have supported throughout the years. Their commitment to supporting future actuaries is one of the things that makes this profession great."
