Nothing is more gratifying than hearing our scholarship recipients’ success stories and knowing that we helped them achieve their dreams of a college education. Because so many Hispanic students start out with little more than hope in their heart and a will to succeed, it’s inspiring for them to hear about others who have had to overcome fierce obstacles in their climb to success. This year’s Hall of Fame scholars are no exception.
We initiated our HSF Alumni Hall of Fame awards eight years ago, each year honoring five Hispanic professionals whose challenges and accomplishments reflect the value of HSF’s mission to empower Hispanic Americans with higher education. These outstanding HSF alumni have excelled in their chosen field of study or profession, and represent positive role models for the next generation of Hispanic scholars.
