Nola Miguel, MSW ’06

Even while Nola Miguel (MSW ’06) was completing her MSW and earning her Certificate in Social Work with Latinos/as, this former AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer and community organizer was making a significant impact on Denver neighborhoods and schools. She served as Research Assistant and MSW Supervisor on two Public Good Grants at GSSW’s Bridge Project, and she began work as Coordinator for a grant aimed at building community support for children’s rights. She later served as Curriculum Supervisor and Program Investigator on another Bridge grant enabling the Project to expand into Denver’s Quigg Newton public housing neighborhood.  Today, Miguel’s work with Denver Public Schools and Metro Organizations for People facilitates communication between families and schools in northeast Denver through parent and staff education.
