Caren Fuentes, one of the recipients of our Youth Leadership Summit scholarship raffle. Our annual YLS event is free and open to middle school, high school, and college aged youth. For the 2nd consecutive year, we raffled scholarships at this event. All high school senior or current college student attendees that were pre-registered and present were entered into this drawing for various $500 scholarships and one $1,000 scholarship.
Caren just completed her 2nd year at Iowa State University studying for a Bachelors in Biology. Caren chose this major because of her desire to help people, and work with them to make life changing impacts on the community.
Congrats Caren! We love seeing these scholarships go to immigrant students like you that want to continue to pay it forward in our community and beyond!
