My Puente partner, Teresa Guadiana, submitted our program for an Excelencia Grant and we just learned we’re a semi-finalist! Frankly, the amount of effort Teresa puts into the project is phenomenal and it is no wonder it is being recognized. It is a group effort, though, and we have fantastic support, both from the campus–our president is one of the mentors for us–and from the community, and I am thinking particularly of Fred Ruiz of Ruiz Foods and Dr. Robert Aguilar who have both contributed extensively to keep our project healthy.
When you have a chance, visit the COSPuente web site and look at the faces of the students succeeding with us. Every smile is worth all the work.
