Warner School Receives "Friend of the Year Award"

The Ibero-American Action League presented the Warner School of Education with its "Friend of the Year Award" at Ibero’s 42nd Annual Luncheon on Oct. 14.

Warner was recognized for its partnership with Ibero’s education task force to conduct a study on the experiences encountered by Latino youth with the Rochester City School District. Results of the study—“School Experiences of Latino/a Students: A Community Based Study of Resources, Challenges and Successes”—were shared by Warner colleagues and co-researchers Judy Marquez Kiyama and Donna Harris. Other members of Warner’s research team include Nancy Ares, Sandra Quinones, Emily Martinez Vogt, Amalia Dache-Gerbino, Anibal Soler, Dwayne Campbell, and Monica Miranda Smalls.
