Celebrating Success

We are celebrating the tenacious success of a young lady who has been working very hard. She has been relentless in her efforts to stay off the streets and away from gang associations and instead has enrolled in Santa Barbara City College. Edith has been a leader in The JUVY Project for three years.  We met Edith when her boyfriend was abusing her and her life was falling apart.  She fell in love with Jesus, dumped her boyfriend, and enrolled in SBCC where she worked hard enough to earn various scholarships and internships over the years.  Edith just accepted an internship at Virginia State for the summer and will be attending Cal Poly in the fall, majoring in electrical engineering. Edith is the first college graduate ever in her family line.
