It’s graduation season, which means an annual walk across the stage that many graduates assume they will make. For others, it’s a miracle.
Rosibeth Cuevas will soon become the first person in her family to graduate from college. But that’s not the miracle.
Four years ago, Cuevas was a senior at Manual Arts High School in South Los Angeles. She dreamed of going to college in rural Northern California at Humboldt State University, and joined others who would be first-generation college students on a 12-hour bus trip to the school on April 10, 2014.
