Saluting One of Our Lancer Families

Saluting One of Our Lancer Families

As we celebrate family this year as a community of Lancers, we applaud our own Daniel Vasquez, a freshman, his mom Perla Pimentel, and their educational journey together.

Daniel attended Holy Family School, graduating last spring, and while he was a student, his mom committed to a full day of one-on-one tutoring to learn English once a week at the school. Initially, she spoke little English at first, but her skills improved so much that she passed the state certification test to manage public housing, allowing her to work at a better paying job.

“Put in the effort because you only have one life, and there’s a big future ahead of you,” Daniel says, as he cheers his mom’s efforts to provide the best for their family.

Watch this video below from KPIX which tells the story of Daniel and Perla’s educational accomplishments.
