And Milka was the first Latina, in the 101-year history of the race, to qualify for and compete in the world famous Indianapolis 500. These are just a few of her many historic and record-breaking achievements on the race track.

    “When Ms. Milka Duno visited our children here at St. Alban’s, there were also a number of parents in the audience; she told them ‘the most important thing you can give your children is an education.’ She told them that her parents sometimes worked two and three jobs so she could study. Milka said that ‘because of their concern and sacrifice, she is most grateful to her parents.’ I wanted Milka to impress upon the children the urgency of seizing all educational opportunities that will come their way, and, she did just that – and the children just loved her presentation.”
