Here are a few thoughts from two of the 2012 recipients:

Thank you very much for awarding me with the TE-NYC Scholarship. I am very appreciative to have received the honor and I look forward to a great experience at UT. I look forward to meeting you at the Texas Exes Scholarship Award event this fall in Austin. 

Thanks again, Brandon Pomerance

 
I would like to thank the committee for selecting me as a recipient of the TE-NYC scholarship. I am looking forward to being a part of the University of Texas family as well as the Texas Exes alumni organization. With this scholarship, I plan to better educate myself in my field at UT, and fulfill career goals and aspirations. I hope to attend the Senior Send-off this upcoming August, and personally thank the committee members.
