IDRA mourns the loss of Anthony Daniel Mayoral. Anthony was the student president of IDRA’s Youth Education Tekies project in San Antonio at the Edgewood Family Network. A high school freshman, he led 12 of his skate boarding buddies and other local high school students in working with their parents and other community members wanting to learn computer skills and how to use technology as a tool for improving their neighborhood schools as well as for personal needs (job applications, college access information, etc.). Anthony was a personable young man who used his bilingual skills to help adults in the technology class. Anthony, his mother, Maria de los Angeles Mayoral, and his grandmother, Maria Guadalupe Mayoral, died in a car accident on December 21, 2006. Anthony was 15 years old.
