Gabby Jauregui will be a first-generation college student at UC-Berkeley in the fall, in part thanks to Lower Lake High’s Upward Bound program. Gabby grew up in a house where boys and girls had very different standards and expectations. Gabby wanted more for her life, so she defied her parents’ wishes in hopes of attending college. She’s truly an inspirational young woman. Gabby is one of 21 scholarship winners across California for the ACSA Every Student Succeeding award. Each scholarship winner receives $1,000. ACSA is profiling each winner with one story per week all the way through November.
Gabby was also Lower Lake High School’s student of the year for 2016!
