HSF Alumni Hall of Fame Gala 40th Year Anniversary

A great organization changes lives, but a greater one changes lives that live on to change other lives. That is exactly what the Hispanic Scholarship Fund has been doing since it was founded, in 1975. Committed to empowering Latin American families, it is the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic American higher education. The annual Alumni Hall of Fame Gala honors past scholarship recipients currently making a difference. Hosted at the Cipriani Wall Street Ballroom, HSF alumni professor Angélica Gutiérrez and columnist Ruben Navarrette, Jr. were inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame.

A scholarship recipient myself, I have experienced first hand the amazing impact this organization has had on the lives of Latino students seeking an education. Although, you can say I am a bit biased. After talking to a few past alumni, I fled to the bar for a glass of red wine. Red wine helps me cope when dealing with people who are much more successful than I am. In addition to the new inductees, 40 of HSF’s notable Alumni were recognized in honor of the gala’s 40th year anniversary. Yup, 40 more people who are far more successful than I am. At this point, just hand me the bottle.
