The Winner of the 2023 RYSE Scholarship is...Sheyla Cruz!

November 2, 2023

Sheyla Cruz was selected to receive seventh annual Railroad Street Youth Student Empowerment (RYSE) Scholarship!

“Attending the RYSE program made me think a lot about my future,” she says. “Listening to the panels made me understand that making mistakes is fine, because you learn from those mistakes. I also learned that it is important to do what I like no matter what other people say because it is my future. It’s never too late to explore your options and continue chasing your dreams.”
