"CLD has opened up opportunities for me that I could not have been blessed to have anywhere else. It has allowed for me to be in a remarkable position to better myself and the future ahead. CLD has enriched me with valuable information about the tools to being successful. Through CLD, I now know who I am, where I am going and how I am going to get there."

"To my fellow CLD Scholars- I wish you all the very best as you embark on life's endeavors. Never forget where you came from and the blessing that will help you achieve your dreams. Always be you and never steer off the path of happiness."

"This whole CLD experience has taught me the value of all the things that colleges are looking for and that I didn’t know. It helps you think on how to solve problems, work well with others, and always be prepared for the unexpected. Which is why when I come back for CLD volunteer activities I want to tell other students about college and the commitment that comes with the opportunity. I want the chance to communicate to other CLD graduates that even after graduating from the programs you still represent the organization and this is a long term commitment to the Center of Leadership Development."

"CLD has meant a lot to me in my journey towards higher education because if it wasn't for CLD, I would not have had the funding to go to Purdue University. Obtaining a scholarship means that I am able to focus on my studies and not worry about whether or not I will be able to continue my goal to be an Electrical Engineer. I am truly thankful and grateful to CLD in providing me the opportunity to be able to receive it. Not only that, but with the SAT program, it helped me understand the test and prepare so that I was able to get the right score to be accepted into Purdue. Also the College Prep program taught me what I needed to do to choose the right college, the application process and how to apply for scholarships. I am the first person in my family to go to college and didn't know anything about the process, so this helped me with the steps it took to get into college. But most of all, CLD has taught me what I need to know to be a successful human being, to have self respect and the importance of self worth, and how to develop my leadership abilities."

"CLD has provided me with a great foundation for life. Not only did CLD help to provide me with a scholarship, but the self-discovery program provided me with the skills and the insight to get involved at my high school, which allowed me to show off an impressive resume when apply for scholarships. Also the College Prep program taught me a number of things about college that I didn't know and provided me with three amazing women to call and use as a resource whenever I get discouraged or stuck. I would like to encourage all of my fellow CLD scholars to be active in school and to strive for graduation. I implore them to remember the low statistics regarding African-Americans and minorities graduating, and for them to be determined to help raise the graduation rate in our community."
