SANTA ROSA, Texas (KVEO) — A Santa Rosa graduating senior received a $1,000 scholarship.
Cameron Cuevas, valedictorian for the Class of 2020 was the recipient.
The scholarship consisted of writing a 10-page essay on capitalism vs. socialism.
Cuevas says in the release it took him over 10 hours to complete the essay.
“There are dangers to any policies or systems that are extreme,” he said. “All people need to stay informed, be involved and vote before they live in a country where they don’t really have a voice.”
Cuevas plans on attending the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
According to a release, the scholarship was provided by 5 AM Coffee Group.
