Student Spotlight (2016)
On May 19, 2016, Stephanie Perez received the ATHENA scholarship for $1,000 at a special luncheon presentation at the Mission Inn in Riverside.
Since enrolling at Norco College in 2013, Perez has made the Dean’s list every semester and has participated in programs like SSS, Puente, Honors, and Norco College Ambassadors. She has also volunteered several hours of community service to her local animal shelter and senior center. Perez will be graduating in June and transferring to Cal Sate Los Angeles to pursue a degree in Communicative Disorders. Her long term goal is to become a speech therapist.
The mission of the ATHENA of the Inland Valley is to open doors of leadership opportunity for women through inspiration, education, cultivation and mentoring. Recipients must demonstrate leadership qualities, be knowledgeable about their chosen field of study, be able to demonstrate knowledge through academic achievement and have given back to their community through public service.
