Bright Prospect alumna Charlie Quezada has been selected as one of only nine students in the nation  to receive52753_charlie_quezada the Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship for Aspiring Teachers of Color. After graduating from Lewis & Clark University in December with a double major in sociology/anthropology and Hispanic studies, Charlie now plans on using The Wilson Fellowship, which provides $30,000 toward completing a master’s degree in education, to provide her with support and coaching as she begins her journey toward teaching at a high-need public school.

Like many Bright Prospect students, Charlie had once thought that college was just a dream, but with the help and support of Bright Prospect and others, she is now living her dream of becoming a public school teacher.
