I was the first in my family to attend college and obtain a bachelor of science degree. I graduated with a student loan of 15,000. I was never aware that children of farmworkers were eligible to receive scholarships. I know it's too late to get any assistance but I just wanted to say thank you for helping children of farmworkers attend school. I admire my parents for being hard workers and instilling great work ethic in us.
