As a Latino myself, I find it extremely important, both personally and professionally, to help the next generations of Latino youth in the region to improve their lives.”

The awards recognize individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievements and service to Latinos. In 2003, the Diamante Latino Scholars Campaign was added into the awards celebration, a one-of-a-kind student scholarship fund sponsored by Bowling Green State University, Herzing University-Toledo, Lourdes University, Owens Community College, and The University of Toledo. To date, the Diamante Latino Scholars Campaign has contributed approximately $1 million to Latino student scholarships in the region.
