La Liga de Las Americas

Dr. Bernardo D. Martínez was the keynote speaker at last Thursday’s annual Latino Student Recognitions, presented by the University of Toledo and its Office of Latino Initiatives.

Dr. Martínez is a vascular surgeon affiliated with St. Vincent Medical Center and the Medical University of Ohio and hails from Argentina. Dr. Martínez spoke of his history in becoming a surgeon and gave succinct advice to students: “Be honest; work hard; stay healthy; know how to lose; look for luck;” and “remember, no one is born knowing everything.”

According to UT’s Office of Latino Initiatives Interim Director Linda Alvarado, 139 students had a GPA of 3.0 or higher (see adjacent list), with special leadership awards to:  Nathan Martínez, College of Business (nominated by LSU); Carlotta Henríquez, College of Pharmacy (nominated by Christine N. Hinko, Professor & Associate Dean of the College of Pharmacy); and Mona Dokurno, University College (nominated by Cynthia A. Spitler, Instructor & Academic Adviser of University College).
