My name is Amy Henning and I am the assistant principal at Mt. View Middle School.  We have an unique opportunity for our students to not only meet one of our local leaders, but learn about Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge, Ximoara Torres, and her life as Latina immigrant raised in our foster care system.  Many of our students can relate to her story, having experienced difficult childhoods themselves. I know her personally and have always been amazed at her leadership and accomplishments.

 

Milagro Theatre was also impressed with her story and has created a play of her life. The production is designed to come to schools and present an hour long play. We have teamed up with Aloha High School to provide a larger group opportunity for our shared students and would like to send 300 of our English Language Learners and those in Leadership courses at Mt. View to see Judge Torres in April. The Honorable Ximoara Torres herself will also be there to answer questions from the audience after the performance about how she achieved what she has at her young age. 

 

Our PTO at Mt. View and Aloha High have provided $900 of the $1200 needed for the play.  We are asking for the final $300 from our community to give our students this meaningful experience to learn about this amazing, local leader who could serve as a role model for so many in our school.
