Once a year our Students, Sponsors and Families gather for our Family Fiesta at Tom and Maggie Washa’s home. Although our group has grown each year, we were able to add extra seating in the yard to accommodate everyone comfortably. Ask any sponsor who has attended one of these events and they will tell you that it was the highlight of their trip to Isla. I challenge anyone to attend and listen to the students speak without shedding at least one tear. It’s a very emotional and beautiful thing.
*I love seeing our alumni students, (some who I have known for 15 years and Maggie has known several since childhood!) and catch up with them.
*It’s a great opportunity to meet our new students, who I am always excited about.
*It warms my heart to see sponsors connect with their students who are like family or the excitement of the sponsor and student meeting for the first time.
*The Moms of the students cook all of the delicious food for us! These ladies can cook and a special homemade meal is so meaningful.
*I really enjoy watching the children running around playing. A plus at any party.
Sending out gratitude to Maggie and Tom Washa, our students incredible Moms, students who traveled to attend, and Jim Guy for his photography skills.
