Jill Hoffart:

"I am writing to nominate Claire Johnson for the Nebraska Hands and Voices, Guide by your Side Program's Riding Star award. During a very busy and confusing time at the end of her senior year, she committed to writing and presenting a speech for the Communication Contest for Deaf and Hard of Hearing, sponsored by the Optimist International. For her efforts, she was awarded the Katie Gurnsey Honorary Scholarship in the amount of $2500. Congratulations Claire!"
