María de Jesús López M Memorial Scholarship aría de Jesús López, was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother. She is lovingly known as “Nina” by her grandchildren and all extended friends and family. It was not until her death that people actually found out her real name. She and her husband of 70 years raised ten children. Their marriage was one of partnership. Mom was no ordinary housewife. She did take take of all the housekeeping but in addition, one would often find her working in the fields with her husband and kids. In the late 70’s the family moved to California to start a new life with endless opportunities for their children. Her dream was to see her children in jobs that they got to choose. She taught her children and grandchildren determination, a sense of strong work ethic and most of all an understanding of the importance of family. One thing she will always be known for was her daily schedule... breakfast at 8:00am, lunch at 12:00 noon and dinner at 5:00 pm and any time in between for anyone that visited– her kitchen was always open. She is terribly missed by those that love her. On behalf of her family, thank you for this wonderful tribute to her. Although she had a first grade education, she always knew that education opens many doors of opportunity. She would have been very honored to know that a scholarship was given in her name. Thank you..

Adriana Ramos Past NCHN Scholarship Recipient The NCHN’s generosity has enabled me to focus on my academics in such a way that I have been able to not only maintain a 4.0 GPA in all of my coursework to date, but also immerse myself in community work related to my passions. It has been an honor that has motivated me all the more to keep going because the NCHN made me realize the presence of my community, the community that believes in my ability to overcome any obstacle. That has been the most empowering and humbling part of becoming a NCHN recipient, and for that I am the most grateful. My mother’s perseverance despite not having many opportunities, and her hard work regardless of the emotional and financial challenges have been an important source of motivation and inspiration for me. It also comes from our family’s tradition of devotion to La Virgen de Guadalupe. My family passed this devotion on to me and my faith also sustains me. I plan to complete my studies in political science and go on to journalism school. I want to focus on political issues in the Hispanic community , especially as they relate to Immigration issues. (ED. Adriana has maintained a straight A average in all of her college courses, to date.) Kimberley Ramirez Student Speaker - Napa High School Late one school night, my mother woke me up. She told me through her tears that my dad was in jail again and I was to take care of my younger siblings while she was at the bailbondsman. I was just eight years old and even at that age, I wasn’t allowed to act eight. My dad was a constant in jail and my mother always worked. When my dad wasn’t in jail, things were even worse. He made it his goal to terrorize my family. After my eleven year old sister was killed in a car accident, my parents finally split up. I was 13. A t that point I made one of the most important decisions in my life—I refuse to be like my father! I believe in myself and I believe that everyone is born to do something. Whether it is to save, inspire or protect, I believe I was born to fight for the chance to do all three and that’s what my world gave to me. I want to become a criminal defense lawyer; I want to make a difference! (ED. Her teachers describe her as LIONHEART, full of energy, empathetic, gracious, confident, resilient and a lover of reading literature. While at Napa High, Kim founded and led a support group called GIRLS UNITED, aimed at helping 9th grade girls with pride, self empowerment and overcoming adversity. In spite of all of Kim’s challenges, she remains optimistic, determined to use her education to lead her out of her past life. On this journey, she has earned a 3.55 GPA and an SAT of 1440.

Scholarship Recipients Scholarship Recipients Jennifer Fuentes J 2015 NCHN Student Speaker ennifer was born in Guanajuato Mexico and brought to California at the age of six months; her parents, just like many immigrants made the difficult decision of leaving their homeland, wanting a better and brighter future for their children. She is the eldest of four and first one in her family to receive a master degree. Jennifer completed all of her K-12 education in Napa county schools. As a senior at Napa High and as an undergraduate at UC Davis she was a recipient of the Hispanic Network Scholarship on several occasions. Jennifer’s community involvement began during her high school years when she was part of school clubs, like Peer Court, Key Club and the Hispanic Network. After graduating UC Davis with a Bachelors degree in Sociology she joined Puertas Abiertas as a Program Associate. She worked part time and at the same time finished her master’s degree in counseling at the California State University Sacramento. Jennifer join Aldea Children and Family Services as a Behavioral Health counselor, working with youth who suffer from substance abuse. Leidy Tovar B St. Helena High School eing of Latino ancestry for me has meant being part of a big, close knit family. It has meant listening to salsa music, going to family reunions and listening to elders’ childhood stories while eating great food. It has also given me a strong sense of identity. Being Colombian means having close ties with elders, helping others and having a heart full of compassion. The biggest influence in my life has been my mother. Being an only child living in a single parent household, it was inevitable that we would become close. Through her unconditional support, she has encouraged me to do better in each of my courses and she supports my dream of attending college. She has been my motivation and my rock throughout my growing up. I see her working endless shifts and seven days a week and it motivates me to do my best in all I do. Throughout high school, I discovered that I enjoyed helping people. I want to be that bilingual nurse or pharmacist that people request and remember. I want to help people who are suffering to get better. I have seen my mother struggle with the English language and feeling disappointed when she could not communicate. I want to be that person the Hispanic population feels it can connect to and that understands them. (ED. During her school career in St. Helena, Leidy maintained straight A’s with just 5 B’s resulting in a GPA of 4.07. Her teachers describe her as spirited, strong work ethic, concerned about others and an academic standout.)

www.napacountyhispanicnetwork.org See you next year at the 33rd Banquet! Cythia Rafael Jimenez Napa High School A s an Hispanic, a Chicana to be more specific, many barriers have been broken to allow me to stand where I do today. I will be the first generation in my family to attend college, as my parents emigrated from Mexico to the US in search of a better life. My parents did not receive the best education in Mexico, because it was not possible for them to afford it. Leaving Mexico and moving to the US broke many sacred traditions for our family. It sent mixed signals as to who I truly was. I wasn’t sure where I belonged and who I should be. I lacked self-confidence, but despite that I challenged myself with rigorous courses to open the doors of opportunity. My biggest accomplishment was when I got nominated Indian of the Year during my junior year, proving to myself that I don’t have to hide in the crowd, being myself is good enough. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my father. He has always emphasized that education is the most valuable thing a person can have. Yet, I still yearn for the day where he says the words, “Cynthia, I am proud of you!” One of my biggest goals is to help others, as my father has. The only difference is that I want to be well educated; something that my father could not be. I will follow in his footsteps, but I will continue where he was unable. (ED. Before graduating, Cynthia completed 19 Advanced Placement courses and earned a 3.7 GPA. She also was the President of the NHS Key Club.)

Scholarship Recipients Scholarship Recipients Marcos Alcantar Napa High School I ‘m a Vallejo-born son of a mom who attended college in Mexico. I will attend UC Davis majoring in Computer Science/Engineering. While at NHS, I tutored underclassmen via my AVID class, earning me the honor of NVUSD Student of the month for December 2014. I play XXX instrument in the band and have run track all through high school. (ED. Marcos’ teacher, Mr. King, describes Marcos as a “phenomenal student with a history of overcoming the odds, not just to make it but to thrive!”) Marcos achieved the enviable record of earning a 4.37 GPA and an SAT of 1760 while taking 21 Advanced Placement courses. He got just 5 B’s in four years! Evelyn Vega I Occidental College, Los Angeles will begin my 4th and final year at “Oxy” this August and then continue on in a Masters program for Bilingual Education. The high points of my Napa High career were Senior Class President, Indian of the Year and Sunrise Rotary Student of the Month. While in college, I was privileged to travel to Barcelona, Spain taking courses in Spanish and Psychology and interning at a local elementary school. I come from a Michoacan Mexican family with strong cultural values and moral principles. I grew up in a neighborhood where the odds were stacked against me; I was expected to fail. But with my family firmly behind me, I developed the values and drive necessary to keep me going. My two older brothers have led the way in my parents dream by graduating from college, one with a Masters in Architecture and the other in Business Management. Both are my role models and spur me on to the goal that I seek, that is to teach. Thanks to generous organizations like the Hispanic Network which provide financial support to students like me, I will reach my objectives and give back to others struggling like I did. Sandra Correa-Saenz New Tech High School I ’m the only recipient attending New Tech High School. I was born in Indaparapeo, Mexico. My parents only completed 6th grade there and now both work hard to support me and my siblings. While at New Tech, I also completed 17 units at Napa Valley College and nearly 60 hours of community service. Over the summer of 2013 I took a Chicano Studies class at NVC and it changed my life. For the first time ever I felt OK in my own skin. I plan to attend NVC this fall, but my ultimate dream is to transfer to Pacific Union College and pursue a career as a neo-natal nurse. I will never forget my roots and will always find ways to give back to my community by sharing my knowledge, skills and passion. I want to organize and build a health clinic in an undeveloped country for pregnant women and their newborn children to get the medical help they need.

Scholarship Recipients Recipients Scholarship Jose Ramon Ayala T Napa High School o say that I am of Latino ancestry makes me proud as a person because I know that I reflect a good image of my Latin roots. The biggest challenge that I have faced personally was not having the proper support system at home. The only thing my parents could really do was motivate me with words, “No te des por vencido mijo, al rato viene la recompensa” when they saw me struggling with school work. They didn’t receive the best education that they could have received. They both had to leave education behind to work for the family. The homework that I work on every night is way past their ability to understand. The person that influenced my life the most is my father. He is the perfect definition of commitment. Although he never got the chance to attend school, he committed to having a job that paid the minimum and survive with a family. I remember when he would come home covered with mud when he worked as a field worker; I never heard him complain. Every time I feel like giving up, I remember my father. He truly inspires me to keep pushing my limits. Upon completing my degree, I plan to open my own practice as a dentist or a doctor. Since I am fluent in Spanish, I can be a great help to people who don’t know how to speak English. Magdalena Ledezma Vintage High School A nother top student, Magdalena accumulated 32 A’s and fifteen B’s on her way to a 4.03 GPA and a 1670 SAT, with 19 units of Advanced Placement courses. Her goal is to major in Biology or pre-nursing and become a nurse or pediatrician. For much of her school career she worked various jobs to augment her parents’ income. Magdalena participated in soccer, cross country and tennis, helped with campus tours, and kept stats for the basketball team. She also earned the coveted Vintage High Lamp of Knowledge, Block V and Honor Roll for four years.

Nancy Morales Sacramento State University B eing of Latino ancestry means that I come from hard working people who have the goal of giving their children a better life than the one they had. I am a Latina and I am one more person creating the path for education for other Latinos to follow. I will be a successful Latina. The person who influenced me the most is my mother who endured breast cancer; she looked so fragile and she said that her head hurt so much that she told my father to shave her hair off. I could see the sadness in her eyes, but she soon found strength going to church. By meeting this heartbreaking challenge, she made the best of the situation and was able to fight the cancer successfully. By her example, I learned to fight every battle that life throws at me. My career goal is to double major in Criminal Justice and Photography. Like my AVID teacher says, “Be the change that you want to see.” I come from a family that has a dream which is to improve my way of life and I will not let them down. I can proudly say that I am my parents’ dream. Areli C. Hernandez Vintage High School M y immigrant parents arrived in the United States with nothing but hope. Areli is the youngest of four children who wants to be a short story author writing about social issues. She holds a second degree black belt in karate and is a varsity badminton player. Her school years included Talent Search, Upward Bound, Summer Search, Migrant Education, Lamp of Knowledge, Jazz Dance and many hours of working in the Cancer Society Discovery Shop. Areli is well versed in sharing her considerable talents with others. All of this, in addition to her stellar academic career with four years of Honor Roll earning a 4.24 GPA, an enviable SAT of 1800 , while completing 16 units of Advanced Placement courses. Her teachers characterize her as a “driven student with a great attitude” and “a top student academically”. Dulce Maria Ochoa Hernandez American Canyon High School O ne of four children, Dulce is our only recipient from American Canyon High School. In spite of experiencing lack of support at home, she distinguished herself by helping others (over 350 community service hours) while amassing all A’s except just 5 B’s resulting in a 4.03 GPA and an SAT of 1510. On her own, Dulce founded a Cosmetology Cub, played women’s soccer, tutored other students, was Link Crew commissioner for two years and helped at Canyon Kids Summer Camp. Dulce will be the first in her family to earn a college degree, setting an example for her younger siblings. Her teachers describe her as “driven, intelligent and eloquent”. She created a series of small group presentations aimed at helping freshmen plan their four year path to college.

Scholarship Recipients Scholarship Recipients Jacqueline Urzua Calistoga High School O ne of my greatest talents in life is my capability for furious determination and perseverance. When I was just five years old, I discovered my passion for soccer. My capable coaches and my very supportive parents helped me to improve my confidence, concentration and composure so I could fight my way thru difficult situations and obstacles. It makes me proud to come from a hardworking ancestry and reinforces the idea that nothing will get in the way of my goals and dreams. I have also applied this feeling of motivation to my academics by earning a 4.23 GPA including 10 Advanced Placement classes. My goal is to major in Sports Medicine at UC Davis. I am proud to have the qualities of dedication and determination so that I can help, give back and contribute to my Latino community by touching many Latino lives around the world. Susana Garcia-Sanchez Napa Valley College & Sacramento State University I ’m of Latino ancestry because my family is Mexican. I share my family’s traditions and norms. Both of my grandfathers came to the US as “braceros”. They were farmworkers who worked their terms and then returned back to Mexico. My father was 20 when he came to the US in search of a better life. Later he married my mother and they both became permanent residents with “la aminista” in the 1980’s. They brought with them two kids and began a bigger family. They left behind other loved ones, but brought with them their traditions and cultura. Both of my parents taught us the value of family, our culture and traditions, and education. They have influenced me to move on and to become someone in life. My parents and husband have supported me in every way to continue my education and graduate. My biggest challenge has been with my new challenge of being a “Mom” to my four children. In addition, I am a wife, a fulltime student and a part time employee. I have succeeded and am realizing my dreams of becoming a Social Worker. (ED. At age 34, Susana has completed 15 semesters at NVC, achieved President’s Honor List many times and earned an overall GPA of 3.52! She gets our Hero Badge!) Elia Rubio M St. Helena High School y father established himself in the Napa Valley at 18 years old as a vineyard worker in 1983. In 1996 my mother and father settled fully in the Napa Valley raising a family of three. In 2003, this “American Dream” was seriously compromised when my father severely injured his back rendering him too disabled to work. He was our breadwinner and our “glue” holding us together. I wanted to set a strong example for my younger sisters by participating in academics, sports and activities. The high bar set by my family, teachers and coaches and by myself has shaped me into the driven and independent person that I am today. I have always appreciated the high standards that my parents hare for me because without them, I would not have overcome my fears or learned to accept who I am, flaws and all. (ED. Elia is St. Helena’s strongest candidate with a 4.13 GPA a 1570 SAT and the honor of being both Girl’s State rep and Homecoming Queen.)

Jovana Garibay UC Davis M y family comes from a small town in Michoacan, Mexico called Patzimaro. I have the good fortune of sharing my life with a big family. My Tita Elfi, my father’s mom has had a great influence on me. She didn’t have the opportunity to go to school because she started at an early age working for others cooking, cleaning and doing laundry by hand. She proved that she didn’t need a man and raised my dad and his siblings on her own since she never had any help from my grandpa. She is a very strong and independent woman. One of the biggest challenges that I have had is adjusting to the University system. I knew it was going to be more difficult academically, but I never thought I was going to struggle financially. Mainly, I want to be a role model for my sisters to follow that will motivate them to dream big and achieve anything they set their minds to. (ED. Jovana completed 8 semesters at NVC with a 3.12 GPA and earning her an Associate of Arts degree in 2014. She has now completed her first year at UC Davis and should receive her BA degree next year.) Valentina Valenzuela St. Helena High School I ’m one out of 52 million. I am part of a group, an extended family really, that comprises 17% of the United States today. I am a Latina. My name is Valentina. I say my name proudly because every time I do, I reinforce who I am and where I come from. Being a Latina, means that I am constantly challenged by obstacles that offer me the potential to grow and to make a difference. I believe that being a Latina in the US can be empowering and shouldn’t be viewed as a stereotype but as a distinction that allows amazing opportunities. As I rise to the top, my goal is to bring many other Latinos with me and to break down the degrading stereotypes holding us back. I grew up on a ranch outside of Sacramento with horses and a few cows. I was introduced to my Latino ancestry at an early age and participated in many cultural parades and events. When I was just five years old I remember gripping the Mexican flag tightly as I rode my horse in Cinco de Mayo and Cesar Chavez parades. My goal for the future is to finish college at San Diego State in education with a single subject credential so that I can teach at a high school. (ED. Valentina finished with a 3.79 GPA and a strong SAT of 1560.) Elise Dorame-Martinez Vintage High School M y family history is grounded in Mexican roots. All of my great grandparents were born in Mexico and the later generations have strong Mexican ancestry ties and a strong reverence for The Aztecas. I have the Quetzalcoatl, precious knowledge, rooted in my sangre. I chose to be in AVID-- a program that helps first generation ethnic minority students attend college—as a tutor. I also tutor for Vintage High Youth Legacy Project which helps at-risk Latinos and Native Americans transform their lives. My dad is my rock. He inspires me to follow my dreams and never be dissuaded even when life is challenging. I want to learn more about my roots and aid others, especially minorities, by using my biliteracy and cultural sensitivity throughout my life. I want to change the disparate treatment of Latinos and others in our community. (ED. Elise completed a record 29 Advanced Placement classes and earned a mighty 4.37 GPA!)

Liliana Gaona-Muniz Napa High School A lthough I didn’t grow up in Mexico, I have learned about my culture from my family. Being Latino runs in your blood. My father was raised in a very abusive household and the cycle continued into our family. I became the backbone of the family fairly fast. I was the strong little girl who, regardless of the situation, never cried. I would hide in my room and read books every afternoon to escape into a different world. During my junior high years, I began to crack down. I argued that my future was here. He told me that I would never go to college and that I would never be anyone in life. Those words hurt me more than any beating I had ever received. Shortly after, my mother left my father. With this new-found freedom, I decided to transform my pain into motivation. I decided that I would prove my father wrong; that I would go to college and I would be someone in life. I pulled myself together and focused on my education. I participated in such programs as Layla and Mariposa which are mostly Hispanic based, and they helped me to do what I love, which is to help others. Now I am a first generation college-bound student aiming for a degree in psychology and a minor in criminology, and one day work in Law Enforcement. I want to help those kids who stand in the shoes that I once stood in and teach them to be proud of where they come from. The way I am. David Estrada Vintage High School M y household was very unstable and I was constantly moving. My father wasn’t home much and my mother had to raise me and my brothers while still working a fulltime job. When I was 5, I witnessed my uncle’s suicide. From that point on, I knew that I must succeed in school and in life. I was involved in sports and other extra-curricular activities. I would visit after-school programs to better my English and was a determined soccer player. AVID, gave me the extra push I needed to better myself and my grades. My teacher, Ted Ward, motivated me to challenge myself and I was able to raise my GPA to a 4.0. I owe much of my success to him and the program. (ED> David graduated with an overall GPA of 3.81 and scored an SAT of 1580, showing that he had the ability to succeed.) I also volunteer at a local middle school to help prepare the students for high school and college. I was born into bad predicaments, but with much strength and perseverance, I was able to overcome all of the obstacles that life threw at me. I wouldn’t change a thing about my life, because if it weren’t for all the hardships that I had to overcome, I don’t know where I would be today. Jennifer De La Rosa Napa High School G rowing up in a family where no one else spoke English other than my younger brother was somewhat difficult. It meant that my parents were incapable of giving me extra assistance. I soon found out that the only way I was going to succeed was by working harder, paying close attention and asking as many questions as I possibly could. My parents still managed to always be very supportive and positive with my grades. Although I know how delighted and satisfied my mom feels when I show her my work, I can also feel the blankness in her eyes when she stares down on my paper. It upsets me greatly to know that she does not understand anything of what is written on that piece of paper other than the letter grade that is written in red ink. All of this has made me realize what having a Latino ancestry means to me—being able to leave your own country to find a better lifestyle and still keeping your customs and traditions alive. (ED. Jennifer’s teachers at NHS describe her as a “ROCK”, a role model, an intellectual with a great work ethic and a great desire to improve her mind while helping others. She has an unusual grace and aura that sets her apart from other students. “She will succeed!”)
