Staff Reports, Houston ISD

Wisdom High School Senior Brenda Guzman was the winner of a $500 Scholarship at the recently held Houston ISD Dream Summit event.
“I am so excited because this is the first time in my life that I have ever won anything,” said Guzman. “It is so wonderful, because this is going to help me in the future, and I am very grateful. I want to be a doctor some day, and this will help me start that dream.”
The HISD Office of College and Career Readiness and Multilingual Programs held the event to offer assistance to HISD DREAMers, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, visa holders, permanent residents, refugees, and asylum grantees, along with their families.
“I went to the Dream Summit because I knew I could find opportunities there,” Guzman said.
