Anthony Delgado has an instinctive knack for empowering others. As CORE celebrates After school Professionals Appreciation Week, we want to take time to recognize and appreciate people like Anthony who work tirelessly for our Core scholars and alumni. Their work makes a profound difference in the lives of our young people.
Anthony started his professional journey with CORE as a summer intern while studying to attain his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from UNLV. His connection with the scholars was immediate and his impact was evident. When his summer internship ended, Anthony was offered a part-time program assistant role. Now, four years later, he is the Alumni and Recruitment Specialist and has taken over his own full-time program, the Alumni Network.
In 2019, Core marked its first high school graduation of our Dreamer class of scholars. Boasting a 100% graduation rate, 59 of those scholars are currently pursuing post-secondary education to fulfill their life goals. As our Alumni Specialist, Anthony expertly works with each of these scholars as they navigate their journey through college and careers. He guides our scholars as they confront a wide variety of new challenges such as work-life balance, financial aid, and increasingly rigorous academic pursuits. His thoughtful and compassionate guidance embodies the true spirit of an educator.
