The award includes complimentary Pre-Convention & Full Registration Package to the 2019 AVCA Convention, five (5) nights of hotel accommodations at the AVCA Convention headquarter hotel, and a slate of coaching education programming and activities for all of the AVCA Diversity Award participants". "I was shocked when I read the email and was almost confused because I knew I did not sign up for the convention. I immediately called Coach Horn and asked her about it and she said it was her. I thanked her over and over because she is like family to me and has helped me get to where I am at today. And for her to think of me immediately means everything to me, she is one of the biggest mentors I have," says Coronado. "I am so honored to have this opportunity to go learn and build up my coaching skills. I get to learn from the best of the best as well as build up my connections and not many people get this opportunity. It is truly a once in a life time opportunity and I have all my previous coaches, Coach Glass, and my family to thank for where I am at today."
