I love the Promise because my mom wouldn’t be able to send me and my sisters to college because we are one year apart, and she can’t’ afford that. The Promise means to me, a better education that I could afford and I can do what I want and not settle. I grew up knowing about the Promise because I’ve always thought of it as a way to do what I want.”

The El Dorado Promise Scholarship has given the students the reason to believe in a good future. I believe that it has changed many lives for graduates and their families. The Promise means a sense of relief that you can get there someday.”
