 Diana Fuentes Michel 
Giving back to Lincoln Heights

Diana is establishing a college scholarship in her name to help students from Sacred Heart and Lincoln High School achieve their college dreams. She understands from her own life, the economic, personal and academic challenges of pursing a higher education. She hopes to help students, who without financial assistance would not be able to attend college.

As a young child in Lincoln Heights, Diana Fuentes Michel did not consider a four-year college education as a possibility because financially, it appeared out of reach.  Federal, state, institutional and private scholarship aid helped fully fund her undergraduate education at Loyola Marymount University.  In 1975, Diana graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Lincoln Heights.
