A Successful #IAmInformed Community Education Forum

Forum Strip

On Saturday, Feb. 22, we had the opportunity to provide information to dozens of families on how they could get their kids to and through college. Attendees of our community forum were able to hear from students who have done fundraising campaigns to pay for their college education, community leaders who advocate for students’ education regardless of status, college representatives and scholarship grantors.

We would like to thank the Roosevelt School District and Percy L. Julian Elementary School for opening their doors to us and hosting the forum. We’d also like to thank Marcelino Quiñónez for making this partnership happen.

We extend a special thank you to our presenters and panelists: Attorney Ray Ybarra, Lily Cañedo from No Dream Deferred, tireless student advocate Carmen Cornejo, panel moderator Eduardo Bernal, FAFSA expert Ruth Nsubuga from Grand Canyon University, graduate students and fundraising gurus Daniel Rodriguez and Germán Cadenas as well as the ingenious and creative Yolanda Medina who was the winner of the Isac Amaya Foundation’s Eureka contest last year, and finally, Laura Suarez for her scholarship knowledge.

We’d also like to thank all those who helped us promote this forum with their networks: Esmeralda Peralta from Be a Leader Foundation, Univisión, Gerardo Higginson, Mariela Gomez de Ell from Onda 1190, Radio Campesina’s community outreach team, Miguel Calvillo, Eileana Gudiño from Valley of the Sun United Way and Bridget McDonald from Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix among others.

A heartfelt thank you to the youth who volunteered during the day, making sure that people knew where to go and ensuring that everyone registered to receive more education information.

Lastly, the Isac Amaya Foundation would like to sincerely thank the members of the organization for their tireless and selfish work as volunteers. The work of the foundation would not be possible without these people: Diali Avila, Laura Suarez, Sayra Sandoval, Gabriela Arias, Nuvia Enriquez, Giovana Aviles, Eduardo Bernal, Martin Córdova, Juan Gomez, Luis Avila and in this case, special thanks to Jessica Valiente and Carmen Suarez for leading the planning of the #IamInformed community education forum. #WeAretheIsacAmayaFoundation
