For another year in a row, East Boston Savings Bank (EBSB) has proudly presented a University of Massachusetts (Boston) student with a scholarship check towards their college career. This year’s scholarship recipient was Renata Teodoro, a native of Brazil, majoring in Political Science within the College of Liberal Arts. A Dorchester resident and first generation college student within her family, Renata never took for granted the opportunity to pursue her college education here in the United States. She diligently worked towards achieving all of her accomplishments and made it her mission to pave the way for other immigrant students to have a successful chance at a higher education. “I would like to thank East Boston Savings Bank for creating this opportunity and taking the time to invest in the education of students like myself. My dream is to work in area’s that impact people’s lives. I believe that people regardless of wealth or status, deserve a quality education and I hope to continue to work on policies that make that possible,” said Renata Teodoro.
