EOS Celebrates AAPI Heritage Month by paying tribute to Thelma Garcia Buchholdt

Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to civil rights leader Thelma Garcia Buchholdt who was elected to the Alaska House of Representatives becoming the first Filipinx American legislator elected in the U.S. and served four terms. In 2009, she was inducted into the Alaska Women’s Hall of Fame in recognition of her significant contributions to Alaska as a legislator, civil rights leader, author, and lawyer. Prior to her move to Alaska, she had a career as an elementary school teacher.

In celebration of #AAPIHeritageMonth, may may Thelma Garcia Buchholdt’s dedication to civil rights and education encourage you in your own aspirations.

Join us in honoring Thelma Garcia Buchholdt by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
