Joana Sosa

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Manager

Joana “Jo” Sosa (she/her/ella) joined the Schuler Scholar Program as an AmeriCorps Scholar Coach at Zion Benton Township High School. After serving at ZBTHS for two years, Jo transitioned into the College Counselor role at Round Lake High School. There, she worked closely with Scholars and their families, guiding them through the college process and helping them find their best fit.

Jo attended Dartmouth College as a Schuler Scholar from Waukegan High School, and she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Jo’s experiences as a Schuler Scholar and her passion for education and social justice brought her back to Schuler, where she now works as the Manager of Diversity, Equity and inclusion.

In her personal time, Jo enjoys running, drinking coffee while listening to a good podcast, and spending time outdoors with her husband and their dog.

"My philosophy in life and working with students is that your education and your life experiences are things that no one can ever take away from you."
