Dorothy Lerma - Passionate advocate for financial education

We're sad to share news of Dorothy's death in late December. She was a long-time advocate for personal financial literacy in California and a recipient of our California Jump$tart Leadership award in 2008. Dorothy was a major force in the success of CASDRAP and StudentDebtHelp.org and taught financial education across San Diego County, including Camp Pendleton. Our warmest condolences go out to her family and friends.

Memorial donations may be made to StudentDebtHelp.org, c/o Mary Snyder, P.O. Box 2855, Ramona, CA 92065.
