Student Emilse Osorio loves the support provided by this annual event. She states, “I would like to express my gratitude to the Grape to Glass Gala- A Winemaker’s Dinner. I started school in winter of 2014 in below college-level classes, but that didn’t make me back off. I found the support for my struggles at the writing center in school and with one of the most helpful people, that has crossed my path, Instructor Trent Ball, I can truly say that my time studying at YVC has definitely changed my life for the good, and that is due to this scholarship. Thanks to this event I have revived my hopes to continue my education and obtained the tools I need to be successful in life.”
