March Volunteer of the Month Kelly Esparza

Congratulations to Kelly Esparza for being selected Santiago’s March Parent Volunteer of the Month. Mr. Connolly nominated Mrs. Esparza, writing:

"Mrs. Esparza has been an amazing help and volunteer for the Santiago Wrestling Program throughout the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years. The wrestling season lasts from August until late March and she has been essential in ensuring that the students and parents are up to date with communication, have correct and appropriate uniforms and equipment, understand tournament information and structure, hosts team building and end of the year parties, and takes pictures at all wrestling events. Santiago is one of the few Middle School Wrestling programs in the state and we are fortunate to have Mrs. Esparza serving in so many capacities to keep this program thriving."
