January 2019 – Congratulations to Diego Guerra on receiving an APA Florida Minority Scholarship! Diego, a former U.S. Marine (Thank you for your service!), is currently enrolled in USF’s Master of Urban and Regional Planning program. Studying to pursue a career as an environmental/ resiliency planner, he’s currently reviewing legislation, such as the Stafford Act, to see if it will further propagate vulnerability within particular social/economic classes whose majority encompass minority populations.
Diego interned with Plan Hillsborough last summer. He joined our staff full time in September as a Planning and Mapping Technician, while continuing to take three classes per semester.
