To kick off his summer vacation, Herik Lopez rolled out of bed at 3:30 a.m., dressed in the dark and within an hour was among the workers in an Imperial County field, yanking melons from the dirt. The 16-year-old worked through the morning, taking only a 15-minute break to gobble down the tacos de machaca y huevo - shredded beef and eggs - his mother had made. A few days later, he awoke at 7 a.m. in a dorm room at the University of La Verne. Well-rested and among other teenagers like him, he strolled across the quaint campus to Founder's Hall for his English class.
