LH Dollars for Scholars Awards 
Two Renewable Scholarships

Yadira Cruz, 2016 Lincoln High School graduate
Yadira, recipient of the 2016 Jim and Esther Rodarte Memorial Scholarship, has been awarded a $1,100 Lincoln Heights Dollars for Scholars Renewable Scholarship. Yadira ended her first year at Humbolt State with excellent grades
 and reports, "Humboldt is a beautiful place and truly does feel like my home. I have learned a lot about myself that I didn't know." Yadira shares, "This renewable scholarship has given me not only financial support but peace of mind to my loved ones and me. Being a person of color, it wasn't only important for me to get accepted into a university; but, also being able to be successful each year and to graduate. This scholarship has helped me continue to move forward with that goal." In addition to her classes, Yadira joined the Criminology & Justice/Sociology and the Healing Vibrations Clubs.

Elizabeth Hernandez, 2016 Sacred Heart High School graduate 
Elizabeth, recipient of the 2016 Richard Diaz Memorial Scholarship, has been awarded the $1,100 Diana Fuentes Michel Renewable Scholarship by Lincoln Heights Dollars for Scholars. Elizabeth extends a special thanks to Sacred Heart HS alumnae Diana Fuentes Michel for her contributions to support the renewable scholarship and to the LH Dollars for Scholars Chapter.  Elizabeth, a sophomore at Cal Poly Pomona, has achieved excellent marks in Statistics, US History, Mass Communications, English Composition, and Critical Thinking. She reports a great first-year experience, and is a proud member of Cal Poly's Cross-Country Track and Field Team!
