May the spirit of these holidays be with you throughout the New Year 2015 and may you find some time to reflect on your blessings, family, friends, career and life in general. This is also the time to reflect about areas of growth for the New Year and new year's resolutions. Best of luck to you in this new year and hope to see you at our next event.
Our organization has an exciting year ahead in 2015, we are set for May 1st at the University of St. Thomas to be our annual Professional Gala. This year we are doubling the amount of scholarships we offer to Hispanic STEM students to $6,000. We have been asked to be a members of the Hispanic Achievement Gap project, a multi-sectorial project in the state of Minnesota seeking to once and for all reduce the educational gap affecting the Hispanic community which is the largest in the US.
There is still a lot of work to be done, ground to cover and I hope 2015 is a year that is great for the community and for all of our professional members.
