The Immigration Project Board of Directors met for its annual meeting on June 7, 2014. During the meeting, the Board honored Merwyn Nelson for his ten years of devoted service to the Immigration Project as a board member and volunteer. Although he will no longer serve as a board member, Merwyn stated, “I will continue helping with immigrants through ESL classes and helping them study for citizenship and passing out information flyers and business cards for Immigration Project.”
The Board also thanked Claudia Fabian for her four years of service as a board member, and, most notably, for her leadership as President. As she prepares for advancement with the Illinois Department of Public Health – Vital Records, Claudia reflected, “It has been an honor to be a part of this board and to serve with you… I leaned so much, got to know many of you (which probably would have not happened if not for IP) and had lots of fun too so, what else can one ask for?”
