Sergio – Tarleton State University

“The STAR Program has made me a responsible student. My eligibility for the program depend[ed] on my grades, effort, conduct and attendance each quarter and I work[ed] hard to surpass these expectations. Thanks to this program, I now have a plan, not just a dream, for my future.”

“I hope more sponsors invest in the STAR Program, because if it has helped my family and me, [it] can help others. I would like to thank my sponsor for everything he has done for me and in helping me aspire to be a better person by getting a great education. To all of the children who are about to enter the program, I say to you, ‘Take advantage of it. Set your goals and go for them. It might be hard at first, but in the end, it will always pay off.'”

Sergio graduated from Nolan Catholic High School in 2015. He is currently attending Tarleton University majoring in Marketing.
