"My name is Tom Sliwinski and I am the recipient of the 2006 TwinWest Legacy Scholarship. I remember vividly how excited and proud I was to have been chosen...the Legacy Scholarship sent me on my way and greatly assisted me in achieving my educational goals, which prepared me for my future in the business world.
I then moved on to a position at Thomson Reuters managing my team in the FindLaw Division. I helped develop a brand new PPC product, which provides paid search advertising service for lawyers across the country.
I also have been busy at night and on the weekends with my own venture called Fast-Brake, which I co-own. Fast-Brake manufactures and sells Athletic Traction Mats to athletic teams across the country (Website: www.Fast-Brake.com).
So, as you can see, without the help of my TwinWest Legacy Scholarship in gaining a most valuable education, I do not know if I would be where I am today. It is not just about the monetary help that it gave me. It also gave me the confidence to believe that anything is possible and to actually go after my dreams. Instead of just being a dreamer, it helped me to become a dream maker. That is why the TwinWest Scholarships are so very important and should be continued."
