The Annual Kristina Flores Overcoming All Odds Scholarship

The Kristina Flores Overcoming All Odds Scholarship was created both to honor the life and achievements of Kristina Flores, who passed on tragically at the age of 23, and to honor and encourage the education of young people who are also are faced with overwhelming obstacles that might have prevented them from completing high school but did not. The scholarship will go to the person who best represents themselves through their application with an emphasis on their essay. The continuing education requirements are intentionally loose for this scholarship. While we would like to encourage all young people to get a traditional college education, we realize that many of the young people who will apply may be leaving unfortunate circumstances and don’t have much family support. Regardless if you’re going to a vocational/trade school, or a traditional University we encourage all to enter.
