Rina Ybarra (B.A. 2018, Spanish) planned and executed a stellar community service project at the Tucson Jewish Community Center. Building on her elder rehab experience and contacts, she put together a beautiful art workshop for six memory challenged senior adults and eight of their family menbers and caregivers.
