I am one of the 26 children who has been able to pursue my academic goals thanks to the Isaac Pedroza Memorial Foundation and friends. My father, James Yule Jr., passed away in March 2008 when I was just 12 years old. As I got older, the talk of college became a regular conversation. During my first semester of college, I received a Facebook message from a man I have never spoken to before. Don Peterson reached out to me and informed me about the non-profit agency, The Isaac, that helps individuals such as myself with the financial burden that college brings. At first, I was extremely skeptical, it all sounded too good to be true. I reached out to my mom and informed her of the conversation I had with Don. Tears filled her eyes. I researched The Isaac Pedroza Memorial Foundation to educate myself on their mission and how the foundation started. I was so thoroughly impressed and honored that my family and I made the weekend trip from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, PA to participate in the annual golf outing. Though I am personally not a big golf person, it was an amazing experience to meet some of the other 26 children who were present as well as many of the donors. Without the Isaac Pedroza Memorial Foundation, I would not be the woman I am today. I cannot explain how grateful I am to be a part of such an amazing agency and all of the individuals who continue to make The Isaac what it is today. I am now pursuing my master’s in social work (MSW) at The University of Pittsburgh which would have never been possible without The Isaac Pedroza Memorial Foundation.
