About

Meet Colleen Lewis Aguilar '04, '06MA


Colleen, who lives and teaches high school Spanish in Long Beach, Calif., was recognized for her efforts to help young girls in developing countries build faith and self-esteem through “Basketball With a Mission,” a non-profit Colleen established in 2005. A Spanish major at SHU and member of the Saints basketball team, she was inspired to combine these passions after a Siena mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Since then she has led summer basketball programs in Cost Rica, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Argentina.
