Rodriguez High School senior Claudia Diaz came to Armijo High School on Thursday night hoping to get an assist for college.
Diaz wants to be a teacher and will attend California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo next year. She is seeking Assist-A-Grad scholarships to help with the finances.
Scholarships are valuable to her.
“They’re really important, because I have two siblings in college already,” she said. “It’s hard to pay for all three of us at the same time.”
