Kevin Arriaga is a senior at San Mateo High School who plans to attend a local community college before transferring to San Diego State University where he will major in Business.
He works as a swim instructor and lifeguard in Burlingame to support his family’s expenses, including caring for his grandparents’ health issues. Kevin views his challenges, including a learning disability, as motivation to work harder.
His references at school and work praise his dedication to self-improvement, steadfast support of peers, and infectious optimism for the future.
For Kevin, an Al Teglia Jobs for Youth Scholarship will help realize life-long dreams of attending college, easing financial burdens on his family, and proving his potential to go farther than anyone said was possible through grit and hard work.
