Avondale Third Graders Receive Full-ride College Scholarships
Dozens of elementary school students received a special surprise to help them along their educational journey on Wednesday.
Third-grade students in Avondale will be able to get a head start after receiving college scholarships.
While many were in attendance at the Avondale Elementary School District, only a few people knew what was to come.
"This is very surprising. We are very grateful. It just took us like a bucket of cold water,” said parent Ana Verdin.
Verdin was excited to learn that her third-grade son from Michael Anderson School would receive a full-ride college scholarship.
Since 2012, The Rosztoczy Foundation has handed out the College Promise Scholarships three times and at five different schools.
Rosztoczy says more than 350 students have benefited, many of them from the Betsy Hargroves School District.
