Congratulations to Bro. Alvaro Peters!
Thanks to the Class of 1973 Community Service Internship endowed fund, the Roger H. Hull Summer Community Service Internship endowed fund, and individual alumni and parents, our chapter brother, Alvaro Peters, along with 8 other students were the recipients of funding for their work with a non-profit organization during the upcoming summer months. According to the selection committee “with limited funding and the largest and strongest applicant pool yet, this year’s selection process was particularly competitive.”
This summer, Alvaro will be teaching and mentoring students through the Breakthrough Collaborative program. The program’s goals are: to increase academic opportunity for underserved, high-potential youth by placing them on the path of a successful college career and inspiring high school students to become educators. Alvaro references, “I find it imperative to provide such deserving yet underprivileged youth with an above average education, as they often fall victim to a lack of resources and fulfilling educational experience of which they consequently suffer a great deal.”
