Two Freshman at Central HS Are Recipients of a Phoenix Foley Alliance Scholarship

Posted by Communications on 8/25/2016

Freshman Jennifer Martinez is a recipient of a Phoenix Foley Alliance scholarship. James Foley was a journalist killed by ISIS two years ago. Prior to that he was a teacher at Lowell Elementary School from 1996-1999. Last year there were two scholars selected; this year, six. The goal is to give financial help and mentorship throughout high school and beyond for these students. Kristen Martinez founded the alliance with her husband in honor of Foley, who worked with students in the inner city.

“I would be the first in my family to go to college,” said Jennifer Martinez.
