"Education has been the greatest equalizer in our lives," Arnoldo Avalos said in talking about the new foundation. "The U.S. gave us many opportunities to create a better future for ourselves and our families. We want to ensure that young Latino students have the support that they need to do the same."

Outstanding sentiment.

Congratulations Mr. Avalos! If you don't know Mickey Ibarra, I must introduce you! The two of you would gain so much from knowing one another. Please feel free to contact me, if you wish. Again, congratulations!
