Testimonials and Recipients
"At thirty-seven, I decided it was time to fulfill my dream of becoming an educator. Unfortunately, the weekend before classes started, I was in a life-altering accident, ultimately losing my right leg. Yet, with determination, I began classes the following semester while relearning to walk and taking care of my two elementary-aged sons. I have learned to balance and juggle all obstacles along the way, including COVID-19. Starting at Monterey Peninsula College then transferring to CSUMB, I have managed to excel in my classes and participate in college and community committees. Achieving the Women’s Leadership Council Scholarship allows me to show up not only for my college success but also for my two sons. I am forever grateful for this opportunity. I believe everything I have gone through and the support I have received will inspire others to reach for the stars."
