"Teresa Foster has been instrumental in planning and implementing the Napa County Hispanic Network Scholarship gala. Teresa's vision and networking ability have made each year's gala a resounding success. She is always promoting and connecting people to understand the mission of the non profit, which is to encourage and foster success among our Latino students. She can always be counted on to lead with quiet determination and exceptional tact."
