When asked about the scholarship. Schuler said, “My first reaction knowing that I would be receiving $2500 (per year) bucks for school was shocking!

I am very appreciative and thankful that Skylands Energy awarded me their scholarship and the opportunity to better my experience during my education at Drew University. I want to personally thank Ed Miller for giving students like me opportunities to better their educational experience.”
