Student & Teacher Reunited

Gustavo Mendoza

Original SOL Club and current community leader, Gustavo Mendoza reconnected with his former art teacher, Mrs. Mitchell.


They had an idea... "What if we recreated the SOL Club for a new generation of kids? This time, including performing arts as well as visual arts."


The goal would be to create community, honor culture and encourage a lifelong interest in the arts.
