Daisy Almonte, NC Hispanic College Fund Recipient

“Finding out about the NC Hispanic College Fund not only meant an opportunity for me to receive financial aid, it meant realizing that there was an organization dedicated to helping people like me achieve their goals.  For me, receiving this scholarship signified not only monetary support but also further incentive to remain persistent in my goals.”

“Being part of an organization like this really allows for people to grow, to network and witness and be a part of something that truly makes a difference in the lives of numerous students.”

“My mother and I now are not confused and scared as much as before about school. Now we feel confident. My mother has become more involved in my school.  Now I want to learn more about my school subjects. My mother feels more proud about me.”

“All throughout this year the ¡Gradúate! program has helped me to see how important school is. Now I see that having an education is the most important thing that one can have.”

Zayra Jazmin Mendez, NC Hispanic College Fund Recipient

“It was a great honor to receive the NCSHP scholarship for the upcoming school year. Tuition at my college has gone up and this eased the burden on me and my family. If it wasn’t for this scholarship there is a chance I wouldn’t have returned to college. I would like to thank NCSHP for allowing me to continue pursuing my dream. Having received this award also gives other Hispanics in my community the hope of one day going to college. Thank you again.”

“I began attending the Summit when I was in 7th grade until my senior year.  Every year I found the guest speakers inspiring from Mr. Chocolate to the Treasurer of the United States.  I know that the possibilities are endless.  Every year there was something special that I took home that motivated me to continue my education.  I hope to someday be able to contribute to my community the way NCSHP has contributed.  Thank you!”
