The Abby Sobrato Scholarship was established by John Matthew Sobrato in memory of his mother. A teacher herself, she inspired him to go into teaching and always pushed for equal opportunity for everyone. This scholarship seeks to honor those values and provide expanded opportunities for students attending Latino College Prep Academy (LCPA), Luis Valdez Leadership Academy (LVLA) and B. Roberto Cruz Leadership Academy (RCLA) in San José, Calif., through significant scholarship support that will facilitate college access and success. The selection committee looks for students who demonstrate academic potential, involvement in community or school activities and contributed to their campus in a meaningful way. Renewable scholarship recipients must be willing to actively participate in mentoring activities, college and career success trainings, and summer internship opportunities.
