Gabriel Gomez-Sandoval is the beloved son of CFLCA founder and first Executive Director, Guadalupe (Lupe) Sandoval. As a sophomore in High School, Gabriel was diagnosed with Leukemia. He battled this disease fearlessly and quietly, however he passed in 2005 as an optimistic and determined college student. Gabriel's dream was to become a teacher. His love for education and passion for giving back were the inspiration for this scholarship fund.

Thank you to all of CFLCA members and supporters for helping me accomplish my dreams. The CFLCA Farm Worker Scholarship has allowed me to attend and graduate from Grand Canyon University with my Bachelors Degree in Science in Nursing.
I am officially a registered nurse, working in the hospitals helping the community during this difficult time, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Your contribution and support goes a long way and truly impacts a students life.
