A Thank-you letter emailed to Master Lian Tzi from Jake B. Palmour, recipient in Social Study UBC:
I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for receiving the scholarship that you donated to the University of British Columbia.
My studies are the utmost importance to me, and with this award I have been reinvigorated with confidence to continue on with this challenging journey.
I applaud the efforts of your congregation, which will undoubtedly assist in building a better community, and society. Through education we can empower ourselves to promote better outcomes for all.
I hope to repay this generous scholarship after graduation, by working within the community to empower and encourage both Indigenous and non-Indigenous People to follow in the footsteps of community leaders such as your organisation.
Thank you very much.
Jake B. Palmour
