Anna Maria Chávez is Yalie of the Week!

Anyone who knows Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez knows she loves Yale University and one of the most formative experiences in her life was leaving Arizona to attend the prestigious institution in New Haven. Well, it turns out Yale loves Anna as well. The Yale alumni magazine has chosen Anna as its Yalie of the Week. And the honors will keep coming for Anna as on March 28 she will be recognized as one of four 2012 Arizona Latina Trailblazers by the Raul H. Castro Institute at Phoenix College and Latino Perspectives magazine. And on March 29, Anna will take part in a homecoming celebration in her hometown of Eloy, Arizona, and we hear there’s even a special edition comic book depicting her life (at Yale and elsewhere) that will be published by the Arizona Daily Star in her honor.
