Please join us in giving a warm welcome to our new Program Director, Zitlali Montes, Ed.D.
Dr. Montes was born in Mexico and raised in East Los Angeles, where she attended public schools and lived in government housing. But just like our MOSTe scholars, she didn’t let humble beginnings keep her from pursuing her educational dreams.
While studying at East Los Angeles College, she also managed to work full time, marry, and start a family. After obtaining her A.A. in Liberal Studies, she transferred to Mount St. Mary’s to complete her B.A. in Liberal Arts with a minor in Psychology. Continuing on to graduate school at USC, Dr. Montes earned a M.Ed. in Educational Psychology/ Instructional Technology, then in 2016, her doctorate in Educational Leadership.
We’re delighted to have Dr. Montes join MOSTe, knowing that she shares our passion for education and social justice. Her lifelong commitment to inspiring youth to pursue higher education will help us continue to support our scholars at the highest level. Welcome, Dr. Zitlali Montes!
Through your support of this event you will change the stories of countless young women. Proceeds of this event help MOSTe continue to provide workshops, college tours, scholarships, summer stipends, winter clothing, grad school applications fees, and more to these young women.
Please join us as we honor Pat Prescott from 94.7 FM The Wave as well as LA County Deputy District Attorney, Jackie Lacey.
