Arizona Connections Academy (ACA) was pleased to celebrate its graduating class of 2011 at the Mesa Arts Center on May 26, 2011. The event, which graduated more than 40 students from across Arizona including teens from Chinle, Fountain Hills, Tucson, Phoenix, Mesa, Goodyear and more, featured special guest speaker Jaime Molera of The Molera Alverez Group, who has been recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal as one of the fifty most influential leaders in Arizona, as well as by Hispanic Business Magazine as one of the top 100 Hispanic leaders in the United States. He spoke to the students about leading the charge for Proposition 301; overseeing a $2 million initiative to bring Arizona out of the national basement in education funding through new-dedicated resources for K-12, Community College, and University education; as well as leading the legislative effort to help secure the funding necessary to expand the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine in Phoenix.
