TIF continues to see our students succeed, even after they’ve left Immokalee. Lately, the success of two TIF students’ athletic pursuits, in particular, have been entertaining to watch.
First, new scholarship recipient Argeo Cruz is becoming a dominant force on the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) track team. He just broke the top freshman record and was just hundredths of a second behind the school record for the men’s 8K.
Aaron Henry is also showing what he’s made of as a star safety on the University of Wisconsin football team. Aaron is from TIF’s first graduating class of the Take Stock in Children program. This week he was named as one of the Stars of the Week by Naples Daily News for his performance in Saturday’s game against Arizona State.
Both Argeo and Aaron are excelling in academics as well as athletics. Congratulations to these two star TIF students. We look forward to watching their success continue.
