Natasha Acosta, a former GLAD student, daughter of Blanca and Herminio Acosta, Sr, has a lot to be proud of. Natasha who is now 20, has always been an honor student. She is a graduate of Lexington Middle School with high honors and awards for achievement. The Rotary Club of South Fort Myers recognized her as an Outstanding Student. Natasha is a graduate of Edison Collegiate High School, with an Associate’s degree from FSW. Currently, Natasha is attending the University of Tampa, set to graduate with a Bachelors’ degree in International Studies, in December and plans to go on to further her education to become an attorney.
We are proud of her accomplishments, as she is still very much part of Gladiolus Center. Natasha accompanies us on speaking engagements and tells about her time at GLAD, and the impact it has had on her life. She also volunteers her time in different classrooms and the offices at GLAD. Last year, she worked as a teachers’ assistant over her summer break at GLAD. Congratulations Natasha we are proud of you!
