In the fall of 2011, Victor Francisco Lopez took Dr. Alexey Root’s course ED 4358 from his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Victor kept in touch with Dr. Root. Recently, he informed Dr. Root that he has been recognized by the White House "Champions of Change" program.  Congrats to Victor and his Learners Chess Academy on this honor.
