Caldwell High School
3401 South Indiana Avenue
Caldwell, ID 83605
Event Type: Diversity Matters Event

Jenny Gallegos, third-year law student at the University of Idaho College of Law, will be presenting to Caldwell High School students about her pathway to law school. Ms. Gallegos is the youngest of six children and daughter of Mexican immigrants, Gallegos faced an uphill battle to earn her education from an early age. Her parents —who moved to the U.S. in 1981 and earned residency in 1987— wanted a better life for their children. The family moved to Kuna when Gallegos was 7. Her father took a job managing a pig farm, working 12 hours a day, seven days a week. The family lived in a small, leaky house on the farm. Gallegos is a recipient of the American Bar Association (ABA) Opportunity Scholarship.  She plans to pursue a career as a JAG after graduation.
