Wildlife, fish and conservation biology major Marisol Gonzalez is blazing trails at UC Davis by being part of the first generation of her family to attend college—a path that she’s able to pursue because of philanthropic support.
Gonzalez is the recipient of the Tracy and Ruth Storer Scholarship, the Steven D. Mendivil Memorial Scholarship, the Reno and Margaret Cruz Scholarship, the Lloyd W. Swift Student Support Scholarship, and the Frank M. Yeatman Memorial Scholarship.
“The scholarships have had a tremendous impact on my life,” said Gonzalez, who is also minoring in landscape restoration and Native American studies at UC Davis. “They have allowed me to avoid having the gray cloud of financial worries and loans loom over me, and instead have allowed me to focus on my studies.”
