Veronica Gorgueiro, a graduate student at Brigham Young University in the Department of Counseling Psychology and Special Education, recently received the National Association of School Psychologists Minority Scholarship.
With the $5,000 scholarship, Gorgueiro plans to finish her education and then serve as an advocate for youth of all backgrounds as a school psychologist.
“I hope to aid students in reaching their full potential and to promote healthy growth and development through culturally competent consultation, assessment, prevention and intervention,” she said. “I have always hoped to create opportunities for minority students, and this scholarship will lead to more chances for me to do that.”
