Annual Somos Acero Achievment Luncheon

Update to Annual Somos Acero Achievement Luncheon
This year we, unfortunately, are unable to host the annual Somos Acero Achievement Luncheon.  Although our school year has been altered due to these uncertain times, one thing is for certain--our commitment to our scholars' success.
We are excited to announce that in lieu of the luncheon, we are hosting a virtual event to celebrate our scholars and present our scholarship winners with the Somos Scholarship! Click below to learn more about the event and to donate to the #SomosScholarship Fund. #WeaAreAcero #SomosAcero

On June 12, Acero Schools hosted its annual Somos Aceros luncheon to award 15 deserving and academically accomplished Acero students with scholarships to help further their educations, specifically focused on college.  CEO Richard Rodriguez and Managing Director of the  Department of Student Achievement, Matt Rodriguez presented 15 students with Somos Scholarship certificates representing awards of $500 or more to be used toward college tuition.
 "Through the scholarships offered today, we hope to pass on our love of learning and help open more doors of opportunity to our students." said Rodriguez.  "This is how WE build community." 
In addition to the 15 Somos Acero Scholarships given, 4 Argonne National HLC Opportunity awards were presented. These awards, in the amount of $250, were granted to 8th grade students to help cover fees for awardees entering their first year of high school.
The event concluded by honoring our 19 Teacher of the Year and New Teacher of the Year awardees. 
Thank you to all of our sponsors and guests for your support. It is your generosity and belief in our mission that enables us to provide students with scholarship funding.
