As the National Coordinator for Scholarships and Emerging Leaders, Alexzandria Sanchez looks forward to changing lives through the remarkable gift of education.
“As a first-gen Latina graduate who attended Ithaca College on a full merit scholarship, I am aware of the role scholarships play in a student’s academic and personal achievements.”
While working to bring awareness to American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ many resources, Sanchez is also excited to build relationships with award recipients. She says, “Sometimes you need someone in your corner, acknowledging that your work is important and reminding you that your goals are worth being invested in.”
One of her goals for the position is to create cohorts of students, as well as an alumni network to provide mentoring, internship opportunities and more.
