The 2022 African Latino Society Memorial Scholarship Recipient

Coming from a low-income, single parent household, my scholarships are the main reason that I can further my education and pursue what I love to do

Laura Avila

In Laura's words

"I'm so unbelievably grateful to be accepting such a wonderful scholarship. Coming from a low-income, single parent household, my scholarships are the main reason that I can further my education and pursue what I love to do. Without them, I have no idea where I'd be or how I would have been able to attend any college, let alone the one I've called home for the past two and a half years. I have nothing but gratitude to those who made this scholarship possible and helping me invest in my future. Thank you so much."

Please join us in congratulating laura on this honor!
