Student wins Money Week scholarship

Money Week

Congratulations to San Jacinto College student Maura Sorrentino, who was recently selected at random as winner of the 2013 Houston Money Week College Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.

Maura entered the contest as a student in a recent Houston Money Week workshop coordinated by North Campus professor Dr. DeRhonda McWaine. Maura is shown in the related photo (center) with Kelly Keith, Women’s Resource of Greater Houston program manager (at left), and with Dr. McWaine.

The Women’s Resource of Greater Houston partners with  Houston Money Week by offering free financial literacy classes.

The scholarship will greatly help Maura. “It motivates me to continue my education,” she said. “It will help financially with books and I’m using the funds to pay for my classes.”

Kudos to Kelly Keith (who also is a former San Jacinto College employee), and to Dr. McWaine for helping students to reach their goals.
