Attendees network at an HSF Alumni Event held in San Francisco, CA.
I hope that you are enjoying 2011 thus far. For HSF, there has already been a lot of activity with plenty more to come. Thanks to HSF alumna, Erica Argueta of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, January was highlighted by a successful Networking Event in San Francisco. It was great to meet so many professionals interested in supporting our work. Photos of the event can be seen at www.facebook.com/HSFAlumni. Don’t forget to “Like” our page while you’re there. We look forward to hosting more events throughout the year. Go to www.hsf.net/GetInvolved to see how you can help.
HSF is also excited that this year we will celebrate our 10th annual Alumni Hall of Fame. This event highlights you – our extraordinary alumni. Nominations are now being accepted through April 15th. I encourage you to submit a nomination for a fellow alumnus or yourself. We are excited to learn more about your accomplishments. Submit a nomination now!
2011 will also showcase our continued efforts of Generation 1st Degree. As you may know, HSF recently launched this initiative in an effort to dramatically increase the number of Latino college graduates by ensuring that every Hispanic household has at least one college degree. Reaching this goal will require all of us to help spread the message that college is not only important, it’s within reach.
You can help spread this message in different ways. Visit www.hsf.net/GetInvolved for ideas or seek out opportunities to mentor a student as discussed in this issue’s Career Focus. January was national mentoring month but that is an activity that can, and should, happen all year long.
There is a lot of fun and opportunity in the year ahead. We hope that you will continue to join us! Make sure to ‘Get Involved’, share your updates and of course – your ideas!
