Thank you to our speakers Tony Chase, Art Rascon, Sara Nathan, Perla Quintero, and Meah Matherne, for inspiring us with your stories on the impact of AMIGOS across generations.
Sara Nathan, AMIGOS President & CEO, recognized Betsy Griffin, Trustee Emeritus. Betsy has been a strong advocate for building connections across borders for AMIGOS for over four decades. During Betsy’s impactful tenure, 19,273 students completed an AMIGOS program.
Nationally recognized multi-ventured business owner and AMIGOS parent Tony Chase delivered an empowering speech on the importance of bringing people together from different backgrounds.
