Carmen Ontiveros, Mentor, Board member and HFS Alumna, surprises her mentee, Sucel Cotreras, during an HFS Senior Parade drop off and provides advice. Sucel, graduate at St. Joseph, will attend the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in the fall.

“Remember to stay true to yourself and values with every decision that you make.  Stay focused and set academic and life long goals. Don’t procrastinate and set a study schedule. Remember that there are those who want you to succeed and are your biggest supporters!”
