HSF Alumna and Senior Manager with Teach for America, Trisha Leon-Guerrero, at HSF's Education Summit.
As 2010 comes to a close, we would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to reflect on a productive year at HSF and most importantly, to thank you for your participation.
This year saw the launch of our national awareness campaign, Your Words Today, to empower parents about their role in their child’s decision to go to college. Through this campaign we are placing educational DVDs in homes across the country.
In addition to encouraging parents about the importance of their words, HSF announced the initiative, Generation 1st Degree. This effort aims to place a college degree in every Latino household and reinforces the importance of Latino higher education as a national priority.
2010 also saw the emergence of our alumni efforts. After 35 years of providing scholarships, we have over 50,000 recipients, many of whom are doing outstanding work in their careers and communities. In addition to providing resources and a registration portal to learn more about you, we want to provide the ability for you to connect with each other.
We have already held three alumni events and five more are in the planning stages to take place in the next several months. Virtual connections can be made through our Facebook page. If you haven’t joined yet, you can find us by searching ‘HSF Alumni Network’. You have also demonstrated your commitment to give back to today’s youth. Alumni contributed nearly $12,000 and with a match from HSF, this resulted in an additional $25,000 awarded to students this fall.
We are excited at your interest and warmed by your passion to join us in our work to better our country through education. We hope you will continue to utilize the tools above and encourage fellow alumni to participate. The more we work together, the greater outcomes we will be able to achieve.
On behalf of HSF, best wishes for a cheerful adieu to 2010 and we look forward to an outstanding 2011.

The only child of parents whose own parents came separately to the U.S. in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, Blanca has always shown uncommon persistence. Read moreHappenings
