Casa Hispana 25th Anniversary Scholarship Awards
Fri, April 28, 2017, 5:00 PM – 11:59 PM CDT
In the last four years, Casa Hispana have awarded more than $90,000 in scholarships to the LMI population of the Fox Valley. Many of our scholarships helped traditional and nontraditional students, who have demonstrated academic achievement in the face of adversity. These funds help students overcome challenges such as: family responsibilities, health issues, language barriers, and abuse. Every year the community benefits from the success of the scholars that are empowered through these scholarships. For example, Isaias Reyes became an engineer and now works for Miller electric. Juan Valdez graduated and now is part of Fox Valley Tech as a lead instructor in their printing department. In our schools, Julia Muñoz-Ellman is superintendent of Neenah elementary school while Alma Lopez and Nancy Aguilar are bilingual educators in the Appleton area.
