Giving Back To The Communities We Serve

At GVILAW we pride ourselves on our ability to not only give back to our communities but to be a part of the growth and future of those we serve. We are proud to announce our partnership with Telemundo Albuquerque to give away two $4,000 scholarships to Francisco and Leslie.

Francisco is working hard toward a degree in the medical field to better serve the community that guided him. He remains inspired by the idea of giving back to smaller communities with little access to medical assistance as he and his family struggled to obtain medical treatment, often requiring long trips to other cities for basic care. Growing up the youngest of three in his household, he is the first within his family to attend college. He hopes that his story will inspire others within the Hispanic community to continue to strive for more despite the difficult circumstances that surround them.

Leslie is currently within her last year of school with aspirations to become a special needs teacher. Leslie herself is blind but despite that has pressed forward past the obstacles she has faced and as such she wants to give back to those just like her. With this scholarship she can now make her dreams a reality as the scholarship funds will go toward the specialized testing needed to enter her field of study at UNM. With this step forward she plans to inspire others with disabilities and to show anything is possible

Their stories are awe-inspiring and we here at GVILAW are proud to provide them with assistance with their future endeavors.
