NOMINATOR’S NOTE: “As an independent student, Jesika is learning how to support herself without her parents’ help. She realizes that the best way to do this is with a college education. She has the longing to be a success so that she can help others who may have faced her same situation. The road ahead for her is filled with obstacles, but I believe that Jesika can be a tremendous success if given the tools and resources needed to make her dreams a reality.” Ame D. Holmes, counselor
