SWTJC board member, Maria Elena Lara presented board president Rodolfo Flores and college president Hector Gonzales with a $5,300 check during this month’s regular board meeting on Sept. 17 in Uvalde.
Lara donated the money in honor of her mother Juanita B. San Miguel who was a staunch supporter of education.
“My mother was a great advocate for education and she always said ‘with your education you can be successful’,” said Lara.
The money was raised through the second annual crossfit competition, which was organized by Lara. The competition was held during Palomino Fest in Uvalde.
According to Lara, last year’s donation was $5,200, while this year’s contribution was $5,300.
This is the second year a donation has been made to the Juanita B. San Miguel Scholarship, which was created in 2014.Full Article >>>
