MC Foundation Student Story
Despite challenges that included homelessness, Luis Rosales excelled in his studies in high school, yet didn’t imagine an opportunity for higher education until a guidance counselor encouraged him. Accepted into every college to which he applied, only Montgomery College offered a full scholarship. At that moment, his new life truly began. As part of the Macklin Business Institute (MBI), Luis poured his heart into his studies. His hard work paid off two years later when he received a prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Transfer Scholarship and was accepted into Georgetown University. Upon graduation this spring from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, he will head to Wall Street as an investment banker at JPMorgan Chase.
