Jorge Corona, a champion of the local charter school movement in Huntington Park outside Los Angeles, was honored this month with the 2017 Hart Vision Award for Volunteer of the Year. Corona, a parent at Aspire Antonio Maria Lugo Charter Academy, was recognized by the California Charter Schools Association during its annual conference not only for his own advocacy, but also for inspiring other families to get involved in the fight for high quality charter public schools.
“Everything that we do is for them, for the children,” said Corona, during his acceptance speech. “The fight isn’t over. We continue to fight for more schools, for more families to have the opportunity to be in these great schools.”
