Education Resources Night - Recap (Held 11/29/2018)

Many thanks to all of those that participated in our inaugural Education Resources Night held at BakerRipley Leonel Castillo Community Center! This concept is an ongoing one that we plan to keep building upon.

Dr. Destry Dokes, President of HCC Northeast, provided us all with a very inspirational speech that we were all the better to have witnessed. Dr. Dokes isn't just an eloquent speaker, however, he truly "Walks the walk" as well!

What made this event even more special was that, not only were members of our community made better aware of the resources that are available to them, but our resource participants were also better able to see how they can pool their resources to make an even bigger difference!

We also had the opportunity to meet and introduce one of our Scholarship Recipients - Olegario Perez who received one of our Scholarships to University of Houston-Downtown! Olegario is a fine and driven young man. We are confident that he will go far and be an inspiration to both his peers and those that are younger than he!
