Alejandra Rodriguez – Florida Atlantic University Honors Program
As a first-generation college student, the pressure of succeeding in college is already challenging enough –– but funding it is undoubtedly the hardest part. The Viner family has relieved my family of immense, immeasurable pressure; they made it possible for me to pursue my educational endeavors and build my future without sacrificing necessities in order to fund it. Before becoming a recipient of the Viner scholarship, I wasn’t sure I could afford college altogether. Their generosity allows me to focus solely on what’s most important over the next few years: my education. I wholeheartedly accredit the Viner family for saving my future. It is my hope that one day I will be able to give back to my community in the same way that they so selflessly have. Thank you to the two I am forever indebted to –– Mr. and Mrs. Viner!
