Ana, is a first generation college student and is able to pursue her Associate Degree of Science in Nursing and become a Registered Nurse because of the support received from our valued donors.
“I’m proud to prove that even though first-generation students may not have as many opportunities, we can still become successful. Thanks to donors, I was honored to receive a scholarship that allowed me to pursue my Nursing degree. To pay it forward, I am determined to help the community through better health.” – Ana, nursing student

When COVID hit, I thought I would have to drop out of Yuba. Fortunately, the foundation helped me get a laptop and Internet so I could continue my education remotely.
