NORTH DENVER — 2016 provided the Highlands United Neighbors, Inc. (HUNI) organization, and The Salazar Family Foundation an opportunity to partner in support of augmenting North High School’s January 2017 classroom educational requirements.
The Salazar Family Foundation, founded in 1999 by Rob and Lola Salazar, has an established mission to encourage Denver-area students to achieve their educational goals. In partnership with HUNI, Denver North Facility/Administration, and North High School Alumni Association, the Salazar Family Foundation has provided additional educational opportunities through a significant financial commitment via a classroom grant.
The 2016 North High School Salazar Foundation Grant is focused in the areas of the Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Special Education, Music/Art, Physical Education and World Languages Departments.
Rob Salazar, a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, is the patriarch of the Salazar Family Foundation. Rob’s passion and commitment to supporting North High School can be traced to his North Denver historical roots. Rob is an Alumni of Bryant-Webster, Horace Mann Junior High, and North High School. Concurrently, Lola Salazar the focal point, lead and voice of the Family Foundation worked side by side with all the stakeholders to identify those grant areas where monies could be applied for an immediate educational impact.
The Mission of HUNI, (a Lower Highlands Denver Registered Neighborhood Organization) is to facilitate consistent and responsible communication among Highland neighbors and the community at-large, to improve the quality of life for its residents, organizations, schools and businesses and to provide advocacy and promotion for our community.
Teaming with the Salazar Family Foundation, North High School, and the North High School Alumni Association, HUNI is proud to have helped deliver on a portion of their 2016 mission thanks to the financial generosity of the Salazar Family Foundation.
