HISPA Role Models that inspire us!

Isabel Cabrera
Isabel is one of those friends of our HISPA family who is always there to support each initiative.  Her relationship, as part of  AT&T HACEMOS,  has been crucial for the great synergy between the two organizations. Isabel is an outstanding leader and HISPA's main liaison for the AT&T High Technology Day. She has supported the HISPA Youth Conferences and Kick-Off Events for the last five years. Gracias Isabel!  

Andrea Velasco
Andrea joined HISPA as a role model/volunteer just a year ago. Since then she became one of the most active HISPA Role Models during the 2011-2012 school year.  She also took charge of the most critical tasks during both of our 2011 and 2012 Kick-Off and Recruiting events, the 2012 Three Kings Banquet,  and the 2012 HISPA Youth Conference. Andrea's relentless efforts and genuine volunteerism are extraordinary. !Gracias, Andrea!
