It's a special day for students in one kindergarten class at School 29 in Rochester.
They will be the first to attend Monroe Community college on a unique scholarship created just for them.
The class is taught by Michele Carballada. She is the daughter of Rochester’s Commissioner of Neighborhood and Business Development, Carlos Carballada.
Carballada is also a member of the MCC Foundation Council. On Friday, he and his wife, Virginia, made a $200,000 donation that will allow his daughter's kindergarten class to go college when they graduate.
Carlos Carballada, Commissioner of Neighborhood and Business Development, said, “I wanted to do it for her because she seems to love her children so much and because I think they need incentive, they need to know there are people that will be proud of them when they make that accomplishment.”
The scholarships will be given to the students who complete high school with at least a B average.
