La Voz Latina seeks ‘Latinos of Distinction’
La Voz Latina, a local organization devoted to empowering Latino youth and adults through education and training, seeks to increase the visibility of Latino role models. Recognizing many of the talented and successful Hispanics in the Rock River Valley will reinforce their message to students about the positive effects of education.
The recipients of the “Latinos of Distinction” award will be male and female Latino adults who exemplify the characteristics of positive role models and inspire students, of all ethnicities, to graduate from high school and to continue in attaining higher education. The nominees should have earned an accreditation beyond high school, such as a college degree, certification in a skilled trade, or other post-secondary study leading to a certificate. Ideal candidates should have distinguished themselves in their chosen career, and have demonstrated a commitment to civic involvement through volunteer service. The nominees should reside in the Rock River Valley region.
