PTA

Text Box: Dr. Garza:  “I have met few people in life more dedicated to serving young people, and willing to devote a lifetime to doing so.  But passion and commitment are limiting if there is a lack of smarts, skill or tact.  Thankfully for each organization that Ramona has served, they have benefited from her intelligence, ability and maneuverability, and witnessed a person so committed to accomplishing goals that collaboration was merely a natural extension in all that she does.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Text Box: Something you don’t know about me: My sister and I both have 3 girls!     Childhood memory:  The 1964 World’s Fair in New York City. Seeing the Unisphere.  It was tremendous.                       Guilty pleasure:  One  word… CHOCOLATE!     Bucket list:  Tour Alaska.

NVTC

Text Box: Evy Sheehan has this to say about her experience at NVTC:      To actually see what   our weekly visits accomplished, to watch people attain more and grow because of our visits, to see personalities emerge, to see the happiness and joy when our friends saw us coming, and to spend time with people who are so real, with no pretenses – no words can describe the warmness of our feelings and caring for these individuals. The range and scope of their disabilities is quite vast, and we too learned and grew from our association with them.
