  1. Congratulations to Augustine Jimenez for his amazing work and generous spirit, but also to his mother and grandmother for their hard work that inspired him and their powerful love, and to the teachers who saw his extraordinary potential. Students like Augustine give me great hope for the challenging future we face. I’m so glad to read his story.

  2. We, all at North Atlanta High, are so proud of Augustine. Congratulations and our prayers are with you for your continued successes.

  3. Augustine, I’m sooooo proud of you! See what working in the MC and being part of our literacy team leads. :-) Come back and see us soon! Hispanic Heritage Planning Mtg is 5/22/19.

  4. This was a deeply touching and inspiring story! It is so humbling to see someone, who has struggled, not only “make it” (whatever that might mean to each one of us) but also remember where they came from, and want to give back and make a positive difference in the lives of others. Congrats Augustine!
