Jessica Suarez, ECOT Scholarship Recipient

October 18, 2021

A recipient of the Economic Club of Tampa Take Stock in Children College Scholarship provided through the inaugural Mayoral Ball, Jessica Suarez is now a senior at the University of South Florida majoring in Cell and Molecular Biology. She was recognized as an ECOT Economic Scholar by the Hillsborough Education Foundation in her second year of high school, where she was paired with ECOT Member Laura Woodard as a mentor. Laura and Jessica have been working together to achieve many academic and personal goals. Jessica is originally from Cuba and moved to the United States at the age of nine. Through the ECOT Economic Scholar experience, she has had countless opportunities to attend networking events, speak at our second Mayoral Ball, learn from our members, and gain real-life experiences that allowed her to be awarded other scholarships at USF. Jessica is excited to continue her journey as an ECOT Economic Scholar student and continue to learn and develop through this life-changing program.
