Skyline High graduating senior receives full-ride Harvard scholarship

Jose Quiroz Yanez dreamed of college while living in Guanajuato, Mexico, but never considered it more than a dream because of his family’s financial struggles.

After moving to Longmont with his mom and two younger siblings when he was 9, he began to believe the opportunities here would give him a real chance to be the first in his family to go to college.

Now, as a member of the second class graduating from Skyline High School’s P-TECH program, he’s headed to Harvard University in the fall with a full-ride scholarship.
