Isaiah Garza, Pop Artist/Fashion Designer to the Stars (From Yakima) - Motivational Speaker for Yakima School District students (Photo) - 12/09/19

Through a grant, the Yakima School District will bring Isaiah Garza to schools and the community as a motivational speaker and solicit ideas on how to “reimagine Yakima and Yakima Schools.”  The Yakima School District is currently engaged in a "Reimagine" campaign to solicit ideas for the future of the Yakima School District.  As part of the campaign, the district is engaged with the students, staff, and the community in strategic planning.  Mr. Garza will connect directly with students to hear their thoughts and ideas and to motivate them toward a planned and successful future. Anyone can submit a "reimagine idea" online at https://www.yakimaschools.org/reimagine  

After students reported very positive engagement and “life-changing” motivation as a result of Isaiah’s talk to 700 Eisenhower students in October, Superintendent Greene felt Mr. Garza was a great fit to expand the impact to all students in 4th-12th grade over eight days in December.

Isaiah is available for media interviews on Tuesday, December 10 to talk about his presentation to students.  Please email Isaiah directly to schedule, isaiahgarzacc@aol.com.
