Amy Velasquez

Amy Velasquez is a middle school teacher in Evanston, Wyoming. Her family was one of the First hispanic families in Evanston, coming there in the 1950s. It is important to her to preserve and share her Mexican heritage, so she created a Cinco de Mayo celebration in her class which grew into a town celebration.
