American Scholarship Winners

2020

Campaign I

All-American CII #1 winner, Ben Kooper, is pictured here with Western Region DVM, J. Brad Britton during SC2 2019. "I joined Vector in 2018 because I needed a method to pay my way through school. I did not want to earn minimum wage - I wanted the opportunity to earn a higher income for higher level work."

"Working with Vector has taught me that I can do every single thing I want in life with careful planning and time management. It is not if I can do something - it is how. I just finished my largest campaign to date, while raising my GPA."

"Working with Vector has given me the confidence to believe that my accomplishments happen for a reason. The grind this summer, day in and day out, helped me prove to myself that I am capable of earning what I want in life. Most importantly, though, the self-confidence I developed in Vector helped me understand and acknowledge the true value of my time."

"Vector has taught me to never stop trying to 'sharpen the axe' as my DM would say. Don't accept mediocrity, look to always make yourself better. You can always improve some part of you."

"My time with Vector has provided me with a valuable skillset that is applicable to my desired career path and other aspects of my life. I also achieved my goal of putting myself in a great position to graduate from college debt-free. Earning the All-American scholarship is a testament to my hard work throughout the summer."

"I started with Vector in May 2020. This summer, when my internship was cancelled, I was looking for what work that I could do remotely due to COVID-19. I received a letter in the mail from Vector talking about this opportunity, and I thought that I should give it a try. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!"

"Winning the All-American would mean so much to me personally. It's nice to get some money for school, but it's the personal effect on me that means the most. It would mean that I am much more capable of things than I think I am. It proves to me that I should be more confident in myself and abilities."

  • Georgia Military College - Dublin Campus

"I have grown so much professionally, physically, and socially in the past few months I have been with Cutco. It's crazy to think that I've had the opportunity at the age of 18 to build up my college resume, grow my savings account, and meet so many amazing people who, like myself decided to step out of their comfort zone and run after success. I never believed anything like this was possible for myself but my Cutco team always believed in me and pushed me to do my best every single day."

"Winning the All-American scholarship will be a statement to myself and a foundation for greater things to come. I set a goal for myself going into this summer - I had written down numbers I had never hit in the two full campaigns prior. Truly, with the right game plan, anything I put my mind and effort to, I can accomplish, and this is positive affirmation."

"I have learned so much from Vector this year. Vector has taught me life skills, like negotiating, proper communication and overcoming adversity. However, the best thing I have leaned this summer is strength. I am strong, determined and passionate - those are the things that make me, me. I wouldn't have discovered that if I didn't accept this Vector Opportunity."

"Winning the All-American Scholarship would mean that I am financially capable with helping my mom pay for my college tuition, giving her a small break she so deserves. She has always worked extremely hard to both provide me with what I need and give me things I want. I love that I can help!"
