Eileen Quintana, the program manager of the Nebo Title VII Education Program in Nebo School District, has been selected as one of Utah’s American Graduate Champions by Utah Education Network.

Connecting education to culture can be key to helping Native American students succeed. Through homework labs and summer camps for students in Nebo School District, Eileen Quintana brings individual attention to 220 students who need the resources and support.

“We face many challenges such as poverty, low graduation rate across the state, health issues and high suicide rates,” Quintana said, “but we are also resilient, hard-working, close-knit families through clans and tribes. We are a strong community that feels very committed to the success of our youth.”

Congratulations Eileen on supporting Nebo’s Native American students and helping them succeed with one of the highest graduation rates in the country.
