"Cabrillo College gave me a good education, but after a year at UCSC, I feel that nothing is impossible. I feel that I can make a difference."
Karl S. Pister Scholarship
Plans after graduation
To attend graduate school and become a professor
Edgar grew up one of 15 children in Watsonville. Family circumstances forced him to delay his education in favor of full-time work for many years, but he eventually enrolled at Cabrillo College, and from there transferred to USC as a Pister Scholar.
Edgar is pursuing the intensive literature major with a concentration in modern literature and a minor in film and digital media. His interest in literature blossomed into a fascination with documentary filmmaking, and he says that the faculty have been wonderfully supportive of his endeavors.
