Lorena Ramos and Fabian Mendez are the proud parents of two wonderful children. Anaih is in 3rd grade and is 8 years old. Aiden is a Kindergartener and is 6 years old. They both attend Dickinson Academy.
In her first year, Lorena is already a hard working Parent Action Leader (PAL) at Dickinson. She is there every day helping the students and the school staff wherever needed. She works hard to connect parents to the Dickinson school family. She works with community partners to collect donations of boots, coats, and uniforms for the students. Since Lorena is fluent in English and Spanish, she interprets all over the local community. Lorena is originally from Texas, but has been in Grand Rapids about seventeen years. She also has a degree in criminal justice.
Education is important in their house. They supplement schoolwork with workbooks and reading materials. As a family, they enjoy going on family trips, as well as watching their daughter play softball in the springtime.
