Alhambra Student Wins Annual Dream Award Scholarship

ALHAMBRA, Calif. – Mar. 24, 2014 – Roy Flores, a recent graduate of Everest College-Alhambra, has been selected as the college’s 2013 Dream Award winner. The Dream Award acknowledges one alumnus for overcoming extraordinary challenges and demonstrating exemplary leadership.

The award honors Flores for completing his post-secondary education while overcoming extraordinary challenges, including a difficult relocation to Southern California and the challenges associated with caring for his aging parents. Inspired by the healthcare professionals who helped care for his parents, Flores was motivated to directly help others as well. He soon learned of Everest College’s Medical Assistant Diploma Program, which provided a balanced curriculum of practical and academic learning to enable him to enter the workforce quickly and properly trained. 

Balancing work, school, and his volunteer activities, Flores, who earned a diploma after completing the medical assistant program at Alhambra, excelled as an Everest student, even becoming a class president, where he was better poised to help others and further his own education.

As a Dream Award winner, Flores will receive a $2,500 Everest College scholarship to pursue an advanced program in his field of study. “It is an honor to be selected as the Dream Award recipient,” said Flores. “The award will not only be a financial help to me but will also assist me as I work toward pursuing an advanced medical assisting program.”

    Although I'm happy to see that there is a Dream Award and that an Alhambra student was awarded one, I certainly wish that student had been directed to one of the fine community college programs in the allied health care field. Everest College is part of Corinthian Colleges, a notorious for-profit company that currently is under investigation for fraudulent practices, among them, poor placement services for graduates and sky-high fees. Community colleges in California charge $46 per unit, and most students qualify for financial aid. There are a host of allied health field programs available at Pasadena City College and East Los Angeles College. Some lead to further study toward a bachelor's degree, and of course, all public colleges and universities in California are regionally accredited by a national accrediting organization. This student may have complete some training, but his future is that of a dead-end career. The $2,500 would go a lot farther in a community college program of his choice.
