Since 1999, with the help of McDonald’s® and community partners, Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) of Greater Las Vegas has awarded more than $4.3 million in scholarships to students from Clark and Nye Counties in Nevada.
Erica Bonilla, a former RMHC® Scholarship recipient and current RMHC® Scholarship Ambassador shared, “Being a part of RMHC®’s Scholarship Program has really given me a drive to continue pushing my boundaries when it comes to my education and my career path!”
Bonilla is a student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and is a 1stgeneration American as her parents came to the United States from El Salvador. Her favorite part of being a Scholarship Ambassador is meeting students and being able to educate them about the scholarship opportunities RMHC® provides and how easy the process is.
“One of the most remarkable things about the Ronald McDonald Scholarship Program is that RMHC® focuses on students with amazing potential who might not otherwise have the opportunity to go to college if it weren’t for this scholarship opportunity,” said Alyson McCarthy, CEO of RMHC® of Greater Las Vegas.
