From KTSM 9 News:

 The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso’s (HACEP) scholarship program is giving residents the opportunity to achieve their goals and dreams.

Since she was a child, Patricia Castillo had always dreamt of being a teacher, and because of the HACEP scholarship program, she made that dream a reality.

“I saw a flyer in the community, and I thought, ‘Why not?’” , Castillo said in a release.

Castillo says in the release that when she learned about the scholarship program she was already enrolled at UTEP, however, this opportunity not only gave her a financial boost toward achieving her goal but also boosted her motivation.

“The scholarship motivated me to work even harder,” she said. “Before the scholarship, I was unmotivated and taking my time with school. I would recommend for anyone in my position to go to school and apply for the HACEP Scholarship and to take advantage of the resources around you,” Castillo said in the release.
