Charlie Reyes Islas is a senior at Pescadero High School who plans to study Business Accounting at San Jose State University, with an eventual goal of using his love of numbers to help others’ businesses grow.
He is a leader in student government, serving as class President twice, on the sports field, where he was MVP of the soccer team, and in the community, where his wide-ranging volunteerism won the school’s Community Service Award.
Charlie’s references laud his infectious positive attitude, integrity to always speak truth to power, and commitment to continuous self-improvement.
For Charlie, an Al Teglia Jobs for Youth Scholarship will help pay for the expenses of school, and as the first in his family to attend college, it will help him model the importance of never giving up to his younger siblings.
