The MJC students receiving scholarships are Joanna Murillo-Beaver, nursing major; Jee Lee, nursing major; Priscilla Ohnmacht, psychology major, and Ricardo Olvera, nursing major.

The program also features keynote speaker Virginia Madueno, a valley native, small business owner, daughter of immigrants and former local elected official.
