Alfonso Casias was nominated by Robin Mashburn, the parent of two students.

"Alfonso has encouraged both of my boys to strive for things they were unsure of or things that were outside of their comfort zones. Because of this, they both received a scholarship that was such an amazing blessing to them and their passions. As a parent, he has encouraged me in difficult situations with one of my boys. I questioned some of my decisions, and he helped me work through that time and gave me the sense of strength to stand up for what was right for my son. As a colleague, I watch him with students and have seen him demonstrate incredible patience. He is an outstanding person in our community and deserves to be recognized for it," said Mashburn.
