Congratulations to Vince Roig, Helios’ Founding Chairman, on being inducted onto the Teach for America Phoenix Advisory Emeritus Board. Mr. Roig was recognized at Teach for America-Phoenix’s 25th anniversary celebration dinner at the Arizona Biltmore on February 21.
“Teach for America helps realize potential and it helps create opportunity and I am thankful for the commitment they have to ensuring that one day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education,” Mr. Roig stated in his remarks at the event.
Teach for America and Helios Education Foundation have a longstanding partnership that goes back to 2007. In fact, Teach for America was one of Helios’ first major investments after the Foundation was started in 2006. The partnership continues to grow because of the strong commitment to equity that both organizations share. Both organizations have the same values and the same end-goal – high quality learning experiences for every child – no matter their zip code. We are collectively striving for the day that all children in our community will have the opportunity to receive a high-quality education that sets them on a path for success in college and career.
This commitment to equity and student success is also embodied by our Founding Chairman. His dedication to organizations like Teach for America and his leadership of Helios Education Foundation all help ensure more students in Arizona and Florida will succeed in postsecondary education.
