While in Laredo last week I had the opportunity to meet the president of Texas A&M International University, Dr. Keck. TAMIU is the host agency for HIPPY in Laredo. The university has offered a wonderful home for HIPPY as well as visibility and connection to all the most important organizations in Laredo.

During our meeting we discussed plans for expansion of HIPPY in Laredo, to make the most of the 3 years of seed money that Mr. Mendell Granoff has provided us. A new supporter, the Fernando Salinas Charitable Trust, has provided funding to expand HIPPY into another location in 07-08, and will expand the home instructor team to 4 members.
