MS. ARELI ARAGON WAS AWARDED THE 'GRUPO ATLANTICO STEM SCHOLARSHIP' 2016. 
"I am beyond grateful for the STEM Scholarship I was granted. This scholarship means so much to me since it will help me pay my tuition at Dominican University. Most importantly, however, it will allow me to pursue a higher education so I can major in Biology and give back to the community. It has always been my dream to attend an university, and this scholarship has made that dream come true. Thank You."
