Ramona Martin was only six years old when she lost her father. Ten years later she was in a tragic car accident that took her moms life and left Ramona fighting for her own. She was out of school for a semester recovering and after two brain surgeries and one jaw surgery later--- she’s back…. As a high school graduate and El Dorado promise recipient. And now she’s Henderson State University bound. Martin said, “It means so much, I mean it helps me pay for tuition. I don’t know what I’d do without the El Dorado Promise; I guess just hope for more scholarship money. But it means a lot to me and I am very thankful for it.” But what’s really neat about Ramona’s story--- it was part of a may article published by people magazine. A woman from North Boro Massachusetts ran across the article and says Ramona’s story touched her heart. So she sent a back to school care package—a bag to take to class, a student id holder, and journal among other things. She says college is a big step in a girl’s life and she wanted to help out-- even if it was in a small way. Martin said, “I was so happy—I almost cried when she read the letter. I’m glad to know that someone cares about me that I don’t even know them.” And Ramona’s friends don’t believe there’s anyone who deserves it more. They say the gift was well deserved.
