How did the two girls feel when they were offered the scholarship?
1. Senior Nathalia Mendoza Gutierrez was so nervous for her final scholarship interview on March 26 that she couldn’t sleep.
2. “I was not expecting this at all,” Nathalia said, wiping away tears.
3. Kayla Smith found herself shaking as she headed to the school library. Fifteen minutes after learning she’d won, Smith was also in shock.

How did they earn it?
They each found ways to keep pushing themselves. Kayla seized the chance to take three dual enrollment courses at Northampton Community College online, earning college credits and pushing herself academically.

What is the purpose of the scholarship?
Superintendent (负责人) Joseph Roy said the new scholarship – valued at about $34,000 (about 223,400 yuan) over four years – is to remove financial barriers to higher education and unlock promising students’ potential.

What are the impacts? What is the purpose of paragraphs 6 and 7?
They all agree the scholarship is life-changing for two first-generation college students.
Paragraphs 6 and 7 cited the two girls' remarks to emphasize the influence, giving readers more detailed information about their dreams and challenges.

Read for language points
1. The 17-year-old gave up on rest around 4 am, prayed and began prepping (准备) for whatever questions her principal (校长), Harrison Bailey, might throw at her during what she thought was her last interview for a full-tuition (全额学费) ride to East Stroudsburg University.
主干结构:The 17-year-old gave up, prayed and began.....
whatever question ... throw at her 做 for的宾语,为宾语从句
what she thought ... University做during的宾语,为宾语从句

译文:I dragged myself out of bed around 6, brushed my teeth and began prepping for what I thought was the biggest test of my life.

2. Kayla Smith found herself shaking as she headed to the school library.
find oneself doing sth 某人正在做某事

译文:When I came to life, I found myself lying in the hospital.

3. “She's always been on the ball. She's so well rounded.”
On the ball 这个习惯用语的意思是:一个人很机灵,在工作方面做的非常出色,总是名列前茅。
据说, on the ball这个俗语来自打篮球,有些著名的篮球运动员有一种才能:在球场上不管球在谁手里,也不管球在场地的哪个角落,他们总能在离球不远的地方,一有机会就可以把球抢到手,也就是on the ball。

译文: That reporter is about the best we have at the paper. He's always on the ball and brings back stories that most other reporters would miss.
