This year’s theme: WE GO FORWARD TOGETHER
Our theme reflects how as a collective we’ve encountered many obstacles and hardships, but together we have been able to move forward. It is also a reflection that even though these Scholars have graduated, we will continue to be with them and support them as they move forward into their careers. Lastly, the theme is a reflection and nod to all the individuals who are part of the Scholar’s life and college success; from family, friends, this scholarship, to college supports.
Our theme aims to highlight the amazing potential of this cohort of graduates and how they’ve been able to move forward and persevere despite so many obstacles in their way, including:
- Arrived in college as the Trump administration and allies were trying to end the DACA program
- Faced a global pandemic and adjustment to learning online, with many from families that bore a disproportionate toll of COVID
- Watched as their hopes for a long-awaited immigration legislative breakthrough were raised again at start of this administration and remain unfulfilled
We want to celebrate and showcase your accomplishments!
