The first annual Frank E. Campos Memorial Scholarship Benefit Dance will be held on October 19, 2012 from 6PM – 12Midnight at the H&H Ballroom in Austin TX
Background and Purpose
A graduate of UT Austin with a MA in Education, Frank E Campos was a dedicated bilingual educator, assistant principal, mentor and community activist. He loved working with children and teachers and remained committed to his profession for nearly 40 years until his untimely death on September 4, 2012. Anyone who spent time with Frank benefited from his optimistic outlook.
An avid dancer, he loved Tejano music, and he had a great sense of humor. He believed that life is what we make it, keeping a positive attitude and taking care of others, no matter what hardships befell him or how difficult life could become. This scholarship fund was established to honor his legacy by benefitting students who pursue bilingual education careers.
Net proceeds from tonight’s event will be deposited in the Frank E. Campos Memorial Scholarship Fund administered by the Austin Community Foundation.
The first scholarship award will be made in May 2013 to a Del Valle or Austin ISD high school graduate pursuing a career in bilingual education.
Contributions to the fund may be made at http://bit.ly/OEPUfF or mailed c/o The Austin Community Foundation, 4315 Guadalupe, Suite 300, Austin, Texas 78751.
