Armida RamirezArmida Ramirez is a 2019 Compton College Presidential Scholar. She graduated with an associate degree in June 2019 and a notable 4.0 cumulative GPA.

Ramirez is a first-generation college student who enrolled at Compton College at the age of 26 while also caring for her two children, maintaining a high GPA, and working fulltime. She is from an immigrant family where her parents always believed in work before education. Upon graduation from high school in 2018, she was accepted at three universities including USC, however, personal barriers kept her from enrolling. She now understands what a privilege it is to attend college. "Compton College not only allows you to see education as a pathway to uplift those out of poverty but also toward upward social mobility," said Ramirez. "Thank you, Compton College, for all you have done for me and my fellow students."
