MVLA Scholars welcomes 24 new scholars from the 2014 high school class. These students will be the first generation in their families to attend college. They plan to attend UC Santa Barbara, UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, San Jose State, San Francisco State, Humboldt State, Foothill College and more. They are considering careers in teaching, aeronautical engineering, journalism, nursing, computer science, law enforcement, and others. Each of these scholars has been assigned a mentor. These students are about to begin college and already they have increased their chances of graduating to over triple the norm for first generation to college students, just by being part of this group based on past performance of MVLA Scholars.
Welcome 2014 Scholars!
