In honor of Women’s History Month, WLRN asked listeners to nominate women they find inspiring in South Florida. We’ve heard about teachers, mothers and activists, just to name a few. We appreciate your tweets, emails and texts about the amazing women in your communities.
For 16 years, Alina Grandal helped countless Hialeah Senior High students dream big. Grandal, the former college advisor at the school, created a culture where going to college was the norm.
College Advisor Alina Grandal was nominated as one of WLRN’s Remarkable Women.
Former student Sabrina Rodriguez says Grandel is the reason she and hundreds of other students graduated and went to college. At the school, many students come from immigrant families and speak Spanish at home.
