Foundation offers full-ride scholarships to third-grade class at a Phoenix elementary school
A local non-profit is offering a full-ride scholarship to a group of third-graders. It’s a college promise program for kids and families in need. To learn more, we’re joined by Pamela Vigil, principal of Bernard Black Elementary School in Phoenix, and Rob Rosztoczy of the Rosztoczy Foundation.
What was the inspiration for this program?
Rosztoczy cited his father’s teaching of the value of a college degree. His brother started the program in 2012 for a group of students in Avondale.
“Our family has been involved in education in the West Valley for many years, and the action behind the program was my brother Tom and his wife Jill, who created it back in 2012, and made the promise to a class of third-graders in Avondale Elementary School.”
