Beating the Odds in America

CDF-TX Beat the Odds Winners

This week, CDF-Texas will honor these five extraordinary young people with a Beat the Odds® scholarship at the annual Houston awards ceremony. Each one has overcome enormous challenges to achieve academically while giving back to their community. Marian Wright Edelman will be the keynote speaker with a special introduction by CDF-Texas 2000 Beat the Odds scholarship winner, Moises Cedillos. On the 4th of July, Cedillos came to America when he was four. Illegal immigrants from Ecuador, the Cedillos family struggled to make it in America. Moises worked as a janitor at a day care center when he was 8 years old. By age 13 he was cleaning up after adults at a grocery store. Teachers often provided food and clothing. Through it all, Moises excelled in school. Today, Moises Cedillos is a lawyer and a permanent resident of the United States and a shining example of a CDF-Beat the Odds alumnus.

Have you always wanted to attend a Beat the Odds event but didn’t have one in your state? Register for CDF’s National Conference and sign-up to support and attend the special Beat the Odds scholarship celebration in Cincinnati, Ohio.
