SALINAS, Calif. - Seven children of United Farm Workers members will be gifted a $1,000 Si Se Puede scholarship Tuesday night.
Jasmin Samudio, the daughter of Monterey Mushroom Watsonville employee, is just one the recipients. UFW President Arturo Rodriguez will present the scholarships at a 6 p.m. ceremony in Salinas.
Samudio will be a freshman at UCLA this year, majoring in Chicago studies. Her goal is to be able to help give back to her community.
The Si Se Puede Scholarships have been made possible by a generous commitment from the United Farm Workers membership.
