Testimonials

Cristina Diaz-Carreon Teaching

Supporting First-Time Students

“I am first of my family to go to college and with tuition rates going up almost every year it has being very difficult to afford tuition plus childcare expenses; this scholarship will be of an enormous help in my pursuit to become a teacher. I want my future students to come into the classroom eager to learn something new. I believe it is our duty as educators not to provide students with answers but rather with the tools necessary for them to explore and become independent learners.”

Helping Spouses Follow their Dreams

“Frequent mobility, unexpected schedule changes, and the unpredictability of what the future holds in your spouse’s career can certainly hold back a military spouse. While attaining my doctorate will equip me with additional skills, it’ll also provide the opportunity to fulfill my dreams. The educational sector also offers the flexibility a military spouse depends on. I can accompany my spouse while still pursuing my own career goals and modeling goal setting and achievement to my sons.”
