The highlight of the B.E.S.T. Foundation year was the evening of May 29, when we gathered at Simley High School for the announcement of our 2024 B.E.S.T. Foundation Scholarship recipients. It was a night filled with excitement as we collectively witnessed the premiere of the 2024 Scholarship Award video, with moments of group recognition and applause for our deserving scholarship recipients. Following a heartwarming reception, where Scholarship Donors, Recipients, and their families came together to share in the joy of giving and receiving. There's something truly magical about witnessing the passing of a B.E.S.T. scholarship award envelope from the Donor to the recipient—it is a moment that embodies the best impact of generosity and hope.
