Latino Education Advancement Fund (LEAF) thanks David Rosario, State Farm for collaborating to assist Gralyn Trujillo Gordon to receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend Loyola University studying Mechanical Engineering this fall. The scholarship was awarded and presented at the end of the 5a. Cumbre Educativa Para Padres y Estudiantes.
"Education is a key component in thrusting our Latino students into a level playing field. There is so much that our Latino community does not know about steps that need to be taken to move our kids to higher education,” said David Rosario, State Farm. “LEAF is about educating parents and students to have an early strategy on education. LEAF is leveling the playing field for our students while providing valuable information to parents. Dale Carnegie said it best, “Knowledge is not power, Applied Knowledge is Power!”
This year’s summit had over 200 attendees including parents and children. There were workshops available for students starting as young as the 2nd grade. The parents’ workshops were held in Spanish. The summit was held Sunday, October 10 at 4:00 pm Eastern time, 3 p.m. Central, and 1 p.m. Pacific Time via Zoom.
“We know that State Farm is here for us,” said Dinorah Olmos, President and CEO of LEAF. “We are very grateful to David Rosario for collaborating with LEAF and making it possible to give back to the Latino community.”
