She was one of only three seniors selected from across the state of Texas. Rose, a single parent, balanced the demands of motherhood, donated hundreds of hours of service to her community and completed her high school education at Garza Independence High School in Austin, TX. Rose was a peer educator for the No Kidding program and visited high schools across the city to teach the realities of teen parenthood.
Rose was also the recipient of a UT Dedman Scholarship which provides funding for four years while she pursues her Plan II major along with math and biology. The College of Liberal Arts at The University of Texas at Austin selected seven in-coming Plan II Honors students for the Dedman Distinguished Scholars, Class of 2010. These students were selected based on class rank, Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, exemplary extracurricular activities, community service and interviews. Each student will receive $10,000 per academic year for four years.
