My cousin Jennifer just graduated summa cum laude with an emphasis in Public Administration from San Diego State University. Our hometown paper, Imperial Valley Press published a story (and picture) about Jennifer, and her commitment to get a college degree.
"When I start something I don't usually like to quit," said the 28-year-old El Centro resident. "So I just took it a little at a time. That inch-by-inch approach worked. On Thursday, Jennifer Alvarez donned a cap and gown and marched up to the podium to receive her San Diego State University-Imperial Valley campus diploma."
"Alvarez also graduated summa cum laude from San Diego State University. The honor is bestowed on undergraduates who maintain an average of 3.8 to 4.0 grade-point average."
Way to go Jennifer!
