This past May, over 300 members of our Alliance community came together—in person for the first time in nearly three years. We raised a total of $1,252,322 for Alliance scholars and schools, including $145,000 to send an additional 29 Alliance seniors off to college with a $5,000 College Care Package scholarship.
Congratulations to our 2022 Awardees: Alliance Teacher of the Year Wynter Williams-Adams, Alliance Alumni of the Year Estefany Rodriguez, and Frank E. Baxter Heroes Award Honorees Lauren Leichtman and Arthur Levine. Thank you for modeling the generosity, excellence, and optimism that inspire us all to strive for great public schools for all young people.
