Selene Mendez, Student Scholarship Recipient

"Being told 'you’re not college material' by my high school counselor overwhelmed me but 2012-2013 being my third year at California State University Monterey Bay; a four year University sure was an accomplishment in my life. I did once believe though, that the counselor was right due to financial problems I encountered and had difficulty concentrating in my classes because of them. Being awarded for the Tri-County Vision Scholarship since 2010-2011 academic year was my second biggest life accomplishment but most importantly it was a stress reliever for my family and me. Thank you for bringing hope back into my life. I have many goals, dreams and hopes that I can turn into accomplishments but you guys make all of them reachable and possible!"
