A Thank You Message from Scholarship Recipient Janet Gutiérrez
Hi I’m Janet Gutiérrez. I’m a graduate student at the UC Davis School of Education and I’m working on my teaching credential. For my parents, education was key. For my mom, she was always like, she always told us “Get an education. Nobody can take away the knowledge you learn at school.” And she sat right next to us and made sure we always did our homework made sure we always had straight As and kept us motivated. My dad would always tell us I want you to get an education so you don’t have to work as hard as I do. He says “You’re going to work with your mind but at least you won’t work with your body.” Smart man. Those scholarships have helped me so much because without them, I don’t think I would have been in school and those scholarships gave me motivation to keep going I’ve always wanted a big family so what better way to have your family at school? Your kids are your family. You come, they love you they look up to you and you’re making a difference because you’re teaching them how to be better people. Thank you so much for your support. My family and I we really appreciate it. Thank you for helping me help my students succeed.
