Mireya Gallardo, a West Valley native and single mother of four, is a shining example of staying optimistic and positive during trials.
Mireya had felt for some time that she should pursue higher education, but through a very painful divorce and trying to raise her children on her own, she didn’t know how it would be possible.
Once a month, Mireya would take her family to volunteer at the local Homeless Shelter. On one of these trips, she decided to stop into LDS Business College and ask some questions.
“Everything fell into place from that day on.” Mireya shares. “Within 30 days, I was enrolled and working on my Business Management degree.”
Mireya was soon awarded the single mother scholarship to help her pay for tuition and books.
