GROW Student: Maria

MariaAs part of the GROW program, GROW scholars are required to give back by partaking in community service. Maria is a tenth grader who performs exceptionally well in school. She has a lot of fun mentoring students in preschool. She also participated in helping clean up the banana farms in Rancho El Tesoro when the storms hit in 2014.

“At the Education Center I was able to volunteer and assist in the summer school program to help younger children. I was teaching the students in preschool, which was fun. I feel extremely happy being able to help others, just as we did when we assisted at the Rancho El Tesoro when the huge storm hit.”
