TESTIMONIAL To whom it may concern I would like to thank you and the selection committee for selecting me as a 2011 recipient of the Modestine Haynes Scholarship.

TESTIMONIAL The Modestine Haynes Scholarship helped me greatly because I didn't have the funds to attend school prior to receiving the scholarship in 2007, this is my second time receiving the funding. I received my Bachelors' degree in 2008 thanks to the scholarship which allowed me to obtain my Masters this year in May 09. I count it a blessing and a privilege for the funding in these economic times it's very beneficial to me. I couldn't have achieved what I've done these past few years without this help. Thank you very much for allowing me to accomplish what I thought was impossible. This year my journey will be complete I'll have my Doctorate I'm reaching my goal. Thank you for believing in me.

TESTIMONIAL Good morning, Once again I would like to thank the AIM-IRS Scholarship committee for selecting me as a recipient of the Modestine Haynes Scholarship. The funds have been applied to my course(s) which is a blessing and I'm receiving A's & B's in my completed courses. I've told our local Scholarship Chairperson to checkout AIM-IRS website. There are not a lot of GS-7 & below grades here in Charlotte, but hopefully the word will get out to those in larger offices because AIM-IRS is a good organization to be apart of and encourage those to apply for upcoming awards.

TESTIMONIAL TO: AIM-IRS National Scholarship Committee From: Janice Ousley RE: Testimonial I would like to thank the AIM-IRS scholarship committee for selecting me to receive the Modestine Haynes Memorial Scholarship in 2010. This scholarship has helped me reach my goal of completion of my Master’s degree in 2011. For years, I was unable to continue with my education due to lack of funds. AIM-IRS helped me overcome the obstacle of lack of finances so that I could achieve this milestone. It has been said that knowledge is power and that knowledge is the only thing that another man cannot take away from you. Whenever I look at my diploma, I will be reminded that I could not have done it without you. Thank you, AIM-IRS, for giving the gift of knowledge and power to your members. Sincerely, Janice Ousley AIM-IRS, Memphis Chapter
