Sheryl posted this:
“Those who know us know how much we love Isla Mujeres, Mexico. What you might not know is that for the past five years, we have partnered with Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program to help students get a college education. Tonight we were blessed to get together with four students (past and present) and their parents to celebrate their accomplishments. What an honor and a privilege it is! These students have persevered through extraordinary circumstances. We are so proud of them and our hearts are full!
This is one of the many things that set this program apart - Relationships!”
Although our students each have a team of sponsors who contribute monthly to fund their education, we have a few who are in need of additional sponsors. We also have a few students that we only send funds to on the semester to pay their tuition.
If you are unable to commit to a monthly sponsorship we do accept one time payments which go to the Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program’s “General Fund”. The general fund fills in the gaps for this and it also covers graduation expenses, titles and licensing for the graduates, extra school supplies, field trips and laptops.

Jana, Maggie and I and our students Thank You for your help.❤️
This beautiful email is from Paloma one of our recent graduates. What she said in her email is what the program really is all about. It’s helping the students reach their goals and make their dreams come true.￼ ❤️
Thank you very much, I really ended up crying reading this nice email.
You have been angels who gave me the hope needed to continue to fight for my dreams.
Each of my successes is because of you, for your enormous support that you have given me in recent years. I'm grateful, and of course yes, I will be in contact with you.
I love that when there is another gathering like last year at Maggie's house, I will be invited. I will be delighted to see you all.
The love and gratitude is infinite.
A hug 🫂
Caro is a single mom of an 8 month old little boy and she only has about a year left (plus a 4 month internship) to finish up her degree in teaching. When she graduates she will be able to teach Science at primary, secondary, high school and even University levels. Caro loves teaching and she loves children. She says, "Teaching is my vocation because I love children, I have an uncle who has a disability and never went to school, when I started elementary school everything they taught me when I got home I taught him and thanks to that he learned to read and write not exactly but he knows how to write and read names and numbers from here I knew that I wanted to help many more people like him who do not have the opportunity to learn for some reason capacity or lack of resources."
Team Caro is in need of additional sponsors. For as little as $30 a month you can help change Caro’s life by making her dreams come true.
Please contact Jackie Conlon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Caro or want more information.
Fernando has graduated and is now a licensed accountant and couldn't be more proud. These are photos with his mom, who was able to attend his final graduation ceremony. We are so proud of him! Congratulations Fernando!!
Thanks to all of the generous sponsors who donated for Fernando to reach his dreams.
The Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program has four students who will be graduating in the next few months. The pandemic and having to take almost 2 years of courses online caused their graduation dates to move out a bit. We are so proud that these students represent the Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program.
🧑🏿🎓 Alexis will be receiving his masters degree in Hospitality Management. Alexis did his internship at Casa Sirena. He also worked at Casa Sirena to earn some income to help with his expenses.
👩🏽🎓 Tamara’s degree is Graphic Design and Digital Animation. She has already illustrated a children’s book. Tamara speaks and writes excellent English.
👩🏽🎓 Michelle’s degree will be Commerce and Business. Michelle just wrote that she was enjoying her vacation break with her family.
👩🏽🎓 Paloma is studying Accounting at University in Valladolid. Her Father is a taxi driver on Isla and her Mother is living in Valladolid at this time, with Paloma, earning a living by making and selling desserts. Her grades are very high and Paloma has an attitude that can be described as happy and excited.
We applaud these students. They’ve worked very hard to get to where they are today.
For me the best part of the scholarship program is becoming a part of the students’ lives. The first student that I sponsored was in 2008. Fourteen years later we are still in contact. Whenever I see her or her family on the island I get hugs and a thank you.
