The event, sponsored by the Tri-C’s Hispanic Council, is held in honor of Latino access and achievement in higher education. Eighty-four students will be honored, including four chosen to speak at the event.
“The luncheon is a great way of recognizing and celebrating the successes of our students,” said Esther Kraft, Hispanic Council program manager.
During the event, the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation will award $50,000 in scholarships to Latino students for the upcoming academic year. The scholarships are made possible thanks to the generous support of community donors, including AT&T, KeyBank, and The Collection Auto Group.
The Foundation and Hispanic Council established the scholarship fund to provide financial assistance to qualified Latinos.
The Hispanic Council of Tri-C serves Cleveland’s Latino families by offering bilingual assistance with enrollment, financial aid and class registration, English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) courses and scholarship opportunities. It also connects Latinos with Tri-C programs, services, faculty, and staff.
