Marisa MendozaDear Mr. and Mrs. Baca Jr.,

I want to extend my gratitude to you and the selection committee for believing enough in me to pick me as on of the Joe Baca Scholarship Award Recipients.

I graduated on June 11th and during the ceremony I couldn’t help but reflect on my school years. Some of the most meaningful memories came from the two evening you gave me. I remembered the stories of struggle shared by the other students and I felt privileged to be amongst a group of hard working and motivated people. I also remembered your Dad’s speech and how much it meant to him to have someone believe in him. I feel the same. I am honored to be a Joe Baca Scholar and I hope to succeed at Scripps College and bring pride to the Joe Baca Foundation and my community.

Thank you again for everything that you have done for me. I will be in touch real soon because I would love to participate in the Basketball Clinic. In addition I am a registered Democrat and would like nothing more than to assist with your father’s re-election campaign. I can make calls or assist with mailings etc.

“Thank you… For all your help and all your caring, you’re appreciated more than you know.”

Marisa Mendoza
