Golder Laptop Scholars 2019

Thanks to your donations and support of the fund, we were able to continue awarding brand new MacBook Pro laptops to two graduating seniors and two alumni of Golder College Prep in Chicago. A bit about each of our recipients:

Osvaldo & Edisa, class of 2019

1. Veronica Camacho: Veronica graduated from Golder College Prep in 2015 and went on to study pre-nursing at UIC in Chicago. She was recently accepted to Resurrection University to complete her BSN. In addition to school, Vero works at Swedish Covenant Hospital. She hopes to be a psychiatric nurse when she graduates in August of 2020! Keep up the great work, Vero, and we hope the laptop makes school less stressful and more fun! 

2. Rocio Tinoco: Rocio graduated from Golder in 2013 and got her ungraduate degree from Connecticiut College where she studied Hispanic Studies and Elementary Education on a full academic scholarship. Currently, she is teaching at a middle school in New London, CT where she works primarily with students who are newcomers to the US. Her job prompted Rocio to want to continue studying, so she enrolled in graduate school at Eastern Connecticiut University where she is working to earn a masters degree in teaching Dual Language Learners. If you didn't think Rocio was busy enough, she also runs the Latinos in Action club at school! Needless to say, she is most deserving of a new laptop.

3. Edisa Niyifasha: Edisa is a recent graduate from Golder and is headed to University of Michigan in the fall! Edisa is trilingual - speaking Swahili, English and Spanish. She hopes to study biology as a pre-med student. 

4. Osvaldo De Paz: Ozzy is headed to Luther College in Iowa in the fall of 2019 where he hopes to study computer science. In high school, he kept busy with rigorous academic classes and on the soccer team. 

We look forward to keeping in touch with all of our recipients as they continue on the roads they have paved to success!
