Letter from a former pupil. Beka Umarashvili

To Roddy Scott foundation

I am happy with the fact that Roddy Scott Foundation still operates and actively encourages our talented generation in Pankisi. If by chance I happen to hear or see news of this Foundation I still feel a sense of pride and I think of all the happy days that I spent here. I can cry tears of joy over my happy life that was built on the foundation. It is impossible not to use those things that you received and learned from the Foundation. It is knowledge that represents your power, and I was gifted by this power of education to go forward in life . For some reason we were chosen by American Academies, where we were able to keep up our English, and get sociable in the English language medium . We had an unforgettable time in the summer school where we learned English with Georgians by the initiative of the Roddy Scott Foundation. This year we had national exams in different subjects and one of them was foreign language, so the English courses that I had in the foundation really helped me to do the best and get more points than ever! And what’s more during the time of learning we were able to get more friends, get closer with them; also I met foreigners, who helped me to find my way in a career in the future. The foundation is really helpful for all of the students, to get a higher education in English, also to become more sociable in the sense of engaging in the wider world and more talented! Lots of students who thought that they couldn’t do anything at all, well you know – the foundation helped them to find themselves in this society and make life better than they could imagine ever. Thanks Roddy Scott foundation for giving the best teachers, students, and for the best director and for the best chances we ever had to go into life confident of our future lives. Marsho!
