Elizabeth Cruz Antonio is a senior at Pescadero High School who plans to study Agroecology at a four-year California university.
She works two part-time jobs to cover school expenses, is an academic top-performer and student body leader, and is fascinated by the question of where our food comes from, and how that supply chain could be more sustainable.
Elizabeth’s teachers praise her positive attitude, resiliency in the face of family tragedy, and compassion to help others.
For Elizabeth, an Al Teglia Jobs for Youth Scholarship will help her seize future opportunities by easing financial stress and covering expenses like buying her first computer.
