Grissom, Carmen Gonzales, Ph.D., (retired/former Vice President for Student Success), Board member Martha Romero, Ph.D., the Honorable Maxaira Baltazar (Deputy Counsul) and Executive Director of SFCC Foundation Deborah Boldt stopped by the Visual Arts Gallery during a campus tour last Thursday.
The three students shared stories about how they benefited from IME Becas scholarships they have received in the past. IME is an acronym for Institute for Mexicans abroad and beca is the Spanish word for grant or scholarship. The scholarship is awarded from the Mexican Federal government to students of Mexican origin and descent living in the U.S. and is matched 1:1 by the SFCC Foundation.
