“I realized that as a non-traditional student, I have the wisdom to change because it is never too late for positive change”. This scholarship recipient graduated from a local high school in 1996 and worked for 15 years before being laid-off. Faced with unemployment and raising two children on their own, they decided to take the leap and return to school and pursue a degree that would allow them “to flourish in the future”. Here at PCC, they developed a love for environmental causes and completed an Associate degree in business administration. They are now at a local university and that much closer to their ultimate career goal of developing sustainable community housing.

 

President's Latino Association Scholarships

I am determined to be one of the examples to show our community is working towards something great”. This scholarship recipient is dedicated to pursuing a career in computer information systems and working at a federal agency. However, they often sat in computer courses where no one else shared their background. They persisted due to their participation in a student organization, and because pursuing a major in computer networking involved “constantly changing the stereotype about Latinos or Mexican-Americans that is embedded into society”. The scholarship they received helped alleviate the financial stress associated with being a major contributor to a household of seasonal workers, and ease their transfer in Fall 2017.
