Ariel Rosado Scholarship

Secretary of the Ariel Rosado Memorial Foundation, Salvador Awe, said, “This is the culmination of the year’s work that we do and it is really the highlight of the year because we actually see the fruits of our labor. We have awarded thirty-odd scholarships to very deserving youth and if you saw some of the earlier footage, you will see that they are well spoken….most of them are doing very well in school…in fact some of them are topping their classes. Mind you, these are children who might not have had the opportunity to even go to high school and now they are successful in doing it and we are very happy and honored to be a part of their success.”
