Ronald McDonald House Charities HACER winners

When I was in high school I wish I had a better understanding of scholarships. Sure I was awarded some through the school and little book scholarships, but a $5000 award would have been better. Just received word that the Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) of the Philadelphia Region is proud to announce the 15 local Latino high school seniors who will each receive a 2012 RMHC/Hispanic American Commitment to Educational Resources (HACER) college scholarship. I had the pleasure serving on the selection committee a few weeks ago.

The students will be recognized at a special awards celebration on Wednesday, May 30th from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., at the Down Town Club in Philadelphia. Winners includes students from the Philadelphia region, New Jersey and Delaware. The evening will feature live music and dance performances. In addition, Kenneth Trujillo, Owner, El Zol Philly and Azteca Philly, will deliver a keynote address to the students. More than $20,000 will be awarded during the reception.
