Highlighted Bishop Scholar

Ruth Moreno

Meet Ruth Moreno our most recent Bishop Scholar recipient. Ruth is a freshman from Juarez, Mexico, and she is majoring in Elementary Education at Southwestern College.  “Hello! My name is Ruth Moreno and I’m a joyful young woman who loves God. If you get to know me you would realize that my passion is to work with children. This is one of the reasons why I chose to major in Elementary Education. Another reason is that I aspire for a better future for our world, and I believe that the only way to achieve that is by investing in the next generation. I believe in nurturing kids because what they learn in their early life defines their character as adults. Overall, I want to serve God and others through my gifts and loving little ones is one of them.”
