Elsy Morales was recently selected as one of three 2017 Sulentic Family Foundation Scholarship winners.
She credits her teachers at H. Grady Spruce High School for helping her achieve academic success.
“I’ve had so many problems, and I didn’t have anybody to talk to,” Morales said. “So the only people I could turn to were my teachers.”
After attending a community college for two years and earning a four-year degree at a university, she said she hopes to return to her community to help others.
