East of the River Foreign Languages for Kids founder Camara Francis received the Multilingual Education Go-Getter Award for providing much-needed access to multilingual education to children living in Wards 7 and 8. “I wanted to get my son into a dual language program,” she shared. “The waitlist was extremely long, and I knew there were other parents in my situation….
