The Illinois Resource Center is saddened to hear of the passing of long-time IRC supporter, Zoila Garcia. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family.
Zoila Garcia, a passionate proponent of dual education, passed away June 7, 2020. Ms. Garcia had been principal at Whittier Elementary School in Chicago and, previous to that assignment, had been a long time educator at Inter-American Magnet School. In those roles, she touched the lives of countless students and families, particularly honoring their languages and cultures. Zoila will be sorely missed.

Please make reference to Zoila in the memo area of the check. Zoila’s family will be notified of donations if you so desire.
