Malcolm and Karen Daly have created Val's Success Fund to financially assist our surrogate daughter, Valerie Kirtley, in order to complete her senior year at Colorado State University. Everyone who knows Val knows of her intense desire to obtain her Bachelor's degrees in Nutrition and Spanish. She has worked herself through college with tenacity and perseverance and now is in the final push to graduation in May, 2013. Because her scholarship and grant funding decreased significantly this year, we are asking for friends and family to make a generous donation to Val's Success Fund!
Valerie Kirtley was raised by a single parent in the Boulder area. Val has faced and overcome many hardships in her young life and will be the first person in her family to graduate from college. She has funded her way through college up to this point by receiving grants, scholarships, loans, work study on campus, and by picking up additional cash through yard work, house cleaning and part-time jobs. She is on target to graduate in May, 2013.
Valerie is a natural athlete who's main interests are backpacking, climbing, running and skiing. She loves her second language of Spanish and became quite fluent during her semester abroad in Granada, Spain last school year. Most importantly, Valerie loves good, healthy, and tasty food. She chose nutrition as a major because of her interest in leading a healthy lifestyle and wants to bring healthy eating habits to young people in North and South America.
Thank you in advance for your generosity,
Mal and Karen Daly
