We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend Fernando Barrueta. Fern has been an invaluable member of our community for over 20 years. With his leadership on our board, he brought his experience, passion, and unwavering commitment to the LSF and our mission.
We will remember Fern for his warmth, kindness, humor, and the positive impact he had on the LSF and thousands of students.
He always wanted to give back and help make a difference in people’s lives and we believe he accomplished just that.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.
