María Lupita Romero, J4NG Specialist at Valley High School in Las Vegas, reported this week that all her J4NG students who applied for Public Education Foundation scholarships this spring received scholarships.
Ms. Romero writes, “Every student for whom I wrote a letter of recommendation to the Public Education Foundation (PEF) received a scholarship. They received their award letters yesterday and contacted me right away to inform me of the wonderful news. I am very happy that their hard work and dedication paid off.”
In total, her five seniors received almost $25,000 in PEF scholarships combined.
