You cannot use one word to describe Francisca Montoya a wonderful and beautiful woman. Kind hearted, funny, courageous, community leader, activist, friend, mother, grandmother and mentor are only some of the words to describe her. In the past year and simultaneously, she managed to fulfill her life long dream of an ASU college degree, attend a prestigious business program at Southern Methodist University, Chair the Fowler Elementary School Board, attend year long/statewide community meetings with over 200+ community organizations in attendance, countless hours of travel and lastly and most importantly, find time to mentor her staff and peers. How she manages to do all these things with such style and grace is a reflection of who she really is. When I think of love, honor and respect. I think of this amazing woman, Francisca Montoya!
