Rio Salado College and Latino Vibe 95.1 FM have teamed up for the “Re-Vibe Your Education” program. Every month, two winners are awarded for their outstanding accomplishments, community involvement, academic achievement and desire to go to college. The first-place winner receives a $500 scholarship to Rio Salado College online (includes tuition, books, and fees for up to a 3-credit course) and Internet service for a year. The second-place winner receives a $500 scholarship to Rio Salado College. The public is encouraged to nominate themselves or someone they feel who deserves to win.

Recently, Maria Pina and Maria Dena were honored by Latino Vibe’s Pedro’s Playground.

Maria Pina

I believe that I, along with everyone who submits an entry, deserve this scholarship. We want to start or continue our education to better ourselves. When I finished high school in 2000, I was 19 and a teen mother. I remember one of my teachers telling me at graduation that I need to go to college. I let life get in the way, but I think the teacher’s words still ring true. Today, I am 27 and have not started my college education. I heard someone say “excuses are fragmented lies.” I have no excuse. I would love the opportunity to go to school and jump start my college education.

Time has passed me by so quickly since I last attended school. I am a certified pharmacy technician, but I still don’t make enough money to support my two beautiful daughters. My goal is to become a registered nurse before my 9-year-old finishes elementary school so I can provide a better future for both my daughters. This scholarship will allow me the opportunity to continue my education and achieve my goal.
