    Thank you to CCWA for your generosity. It was very encouraging to my daughter that her hard work and dedication to her education and community service was recognized by your organization. Kasandra Rascon graduated as Co-Valectorian from Palo Verde High School and is currently attending Arizona State University Barrett’s Honors College as a Biology Major. Her long term goal is to attend Medical School.
