We would like to congratulate Foods and Nutrition major Alejandro Arias on being named the Trustee Emeritus Ali C. Razi Scholar. It is a CSU system-wide scholarship that is the highest recognition of student accomplishments. Alejandro faced and overcame various challenges while attending school. Arias will receive a $12,000 scholarship.
“A first-generation college student, Alejandro Arias knows how challenging it is to navigate the higher education system as a transfer student. Alejandro faced – and overcame – a variety of challenges adapting to the campus environment and family obligations, completing two associate degrees and transferring to San Diego State University.”
