UM Graduate Shajena Erazo Shares Her Gratitude for Scholarship Support

MIAMI, February 21, 2013 —The power of scholarships to open doors to the deserving was showcased last February at the University of Miami's annual scholarship donor luncheon, held at the BankUnited Center Fieldhouse. Capping the festivities was a delightful surprise: this warm videotaped message of thanks from former UM scholarship student Shajena Erazo, A.B. ’09, who is now a public school teacher in Washington, D.C. Erazo was a finalist for the 2013 District of Columbia Teacher of the Year.
