YVETTE CRUZ: “This scholarship is important to us and many families because we need it, especially single parents.”

My name is Yvette Cruz and I’m a single parent.

I choose to send my son to a private school because the public school did not work for him. He did not like public school because he was not getting enough attention in his classroom. It was also not that challenging for him and he was getting in trouble because he was bored. In St. Christopher Catholic School, he is now being challenged more; he’s ahead of many of his classmates and he has no behavioral problems.

We have the Opportunity Scholarship and it helps a lot with the tuition and registration for his private school. Without the scholarship, I would not be able to afford the cost of his tuition. This scholarship is important to us and many families because we need it, especially single parents.
