Antonia "Toni" Martin was a teacher, a mother, grandmother, and pillar of our community. She started her career in teaching as a school volunteer when she was a young mother of three with a third grade education. She realized her love and aptitude for teaching, which led her to pursue a higher education and ultimately receive her teaching credentials against all odds. She has been a strong advocate for the Latino-Americans in our community, and has helped found local organizations and events which offered aid and support to this demographic.
Antonia "Toni" Martin's penchant for philanthropy and generosity has inspired us to continue her life's work in the form of a scholarship extending to other Latino-Americans pursuing a career as an educator. Our hope is that with this fund, we will empower and encourage others like her to achieve their dream career.
