Francisco “Frankie” has been volunteering at SARSEF since he was 16 years old. When he was in high school, he won the Arizona State Science Fair and received a significant college scholarship, making Frankie the first in his family to go to college. He has since dedicated his life and service to helping kids like him. He has helped and inspired thousands of K-12 students by encouraging them to participate in science and to ignite interest in underprivileged children to study STEM areas. Frankie has taken his volunteer work to another level and SARSEF said they owe their success and upward movement all to Frankie. Without him, the organization would not be where it is today.
