Eduardo Samaniego was student body president of his high school in Georgia and graduated with honors. His next step was college.
But his visa was expired and as an undocumented immigrant, Samaniego said, he could not gain admission into any college in Georgia.
A scholarship at Hampshire College for undocumented students accepted into the school brought Samaniego to Massachusetts.
On Saturday, Samaniego told his story to a crowd of nearly 300 people, filling the Grace Episcopal Church in Amherst, where the Amherst Sanctuary Committee held a community-wide meeting.
