A Closer Look at the Impact of The Dr. Herbert E. Harper, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund

In 2016 Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® created the Dr. Herbert E. Harper, Jr. Memorial Scholarship. Since then this scholarship fund has impacted and helped countless family members of CBDHR agents and employees. This scholarship is available in various amounts totaling up to $25,000 for any of the recipients who plan on attending a community college, technical or vocational school, a four-year college, or university in the United States. This past year one of our winners, Charlene Mastick, tells her story on receiving the scholarship and how it is helping her.

“D’Ann and Leesa,

I want to thank you both again for making this scholarship available. I feel so fortunate to have now received the Dr. Herbert E. Harper, Jr. Memorial Summer Program Scholarship Fund, after receiving the Dr. Herbert E. Harper, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund for last academic school year.

I am currently in my summer semester of the Dental Hygiene Program at Amarillo College. So far I have spent my summer fully immersed in patient care. I am really enjoying every aspect of it, but my favorite part is seeing my patients happy and smiling.

After this summer semester, I have just two semesters left to complete my associate’s degree. My decision to continue my education by getting a second degree has been a very rewarding journey. Because of this scholarship, I am able to focus more on my studies and becoming the best hygienist, rather than worrying so much about program costs.

With this generous gift, I am reminded of my excellent support system always cheering for me in the background. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement!

Charlene Mastick”
