Microsoft Makes a Difference at Mendez

I want to congratulate Microsoft Corporation for announcing today that they are adopting the Mendez Learning Center in Boyle Heights and in doing so, making a more than $1 million commitment to be used for training, software and other assistance. When I helped create and envisioned the high school while working on the school board, I knew we wanted to bring in the private sector to assist the math/science and engineering/technology focused campuses. Microsoft has stepped up to the plate in a major way and is showing they believe in the students of Mendez and they deserve our heartfelt thanks.
