Grace and I started the annual Burbank Hispanic Scholarship Fund five years ago through the SAISD Foundation with the intent to help and motivate a fellow Burbank student into pursuing higher education. In our lives, Burbank teachers and administrators were instrumental in making a positive impact and propelled us forward to university studies. In retrospect, we saw then, and see now, the economic barriers that prevent our Burbank students from attaining and reaching their goal of attending college.
Our goal is grow this fund by encouraging fellow alumni to join us in helping Burbank students reach their dreams.
