Enedelia Schofield Hernandez oral history recording Part 3

Description

The third and last part of an audio recording of an oral history of Enedelia Schofield recorded in March, 2013, about her life in Forest Grove, Oregon. In this section, she talks about her realization of how her minority status affects other people in situations, studying and passing the bar exam ten years after she had gone to law school, and getting a job as a principal at Echo Shaw Elementary School in Forest Grove, Oregon. Though not well received at first, Enedelia tells the story of how she gained the respect of those working with her and the parents entrusting their children to her school. She held a large part in starting the Dual Language Program at Echo Shaw School. She also describes how she met her second husband and got married. Enedelia finishes with giving the advice to people to get involved in the community and help people not become another statistic.
