Vargas, President & CEO, Hispanic Scholarship Fund. “Thanks to the continuing and generous support of Wells Fargo, Toyota, and UT Dallas, we will once again have the opportunity to transform lives in the region, by sharing vital information and resources and answering questions.”
Participating students are grouped by grade level, in sessions tailored to their needs, while parents meet according to language preference—in Spanish or English.
