New York, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Mitch Vazquez recently attended Friends Gala organized by the Inner City Scholarship Fund. He is a committed believer in access to education for youth. He is a product of the public school system in the Seattle suburb of Mercer Island, WA and this experience combined with his efforts and abilities earned him a full scholarship to Stanford University. There are many children who are born with great potential but have limited means to get quality education in a safe and secure environment.
In New York City, the Inner-City Scholarship Fund (ICSF) provides these exact children with an alternative scholarships and access to the schools associated with the Catholic Archdiocese of New York. Nearly 70% of the ICSF students enrolled in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island come from homes living at or below the federal poverty line. Their Catholic schools, in partnership with their donors, enable students and their families to overcome enormous odds and break the cycle of poverty through education.
Mitch Vazquez showed his support for the ICSF at the Friends Gala. There with Timothy J. McNiff, Superintendent of Schools for the Catholic Archdiocese of New York discussed the challenges of running the Catholic Archdiocese school system.
