April is a senior from Clovis, California, majoring in pre-health.
"The reason I initially decided to attend FPU was because of the scholarships offered me, its close proximity to my parent's house, and its close-knit Christian community. As a senior, I look back and realize that the faculty at FPU has been an essential asset to my college experience. Over the past couple years, they have proven that they genuinely care about their students and have challenged me to grow.
"I am currently waiting to hear back from the various optometry schools I have applied to with much faith that the Lord will use my life and the experiences I have had at FPU for His glory in the years to come. It has been such a blessing to be a recipient of the President's Scholarship. It has allowed me to study at FPU and pursue my goal of becoming an optometrist. My family and I are truly grateful for the opportunities I have been given through this scholarship money and praise the Lord for providing for me so abundantly."
