Parker is proud to announce that sophomore Saroya Ornelas Pagnucci is the recipient of the Hershey Heartwarming Young Hero Grant!
The grant offers her the opportunity to create Children’s Literacy Kits for children who are homeless and part of the Chicago HOPES For Kids organization. Pagnucci is striving to combat educational inequity, which disproportionately affects low-income, minority children. She is seeking assistance with this endeavor and will be collecting literacy-related donations the week of April 25.
