"I was blessed with the opportunity to study at Texas A&M University which wouldn't have been possible without the support of the Valley Alliance of Mentors for Opportunities and Scholarships."
"By awarding me the VAMOS scholarship, I am able to concentrate on what is important to me, education. I hope one day I will be able to help other students achieve their goal just as you have helped me."
"I am a Criminal Justice major with a specialization in Chicano Latinos Studies, and I plan to attend Law School. Your generosity has allowed me to be one step closer to my goal and has inspired me to help others by giving back to the community."
