The Scholarship Breakfast is the premier event for HWNT San Antonio that celebrates Latinas committed to earning a higher education. This year, HWNT San Antonio awarded $17,500 in scholarships to 14 students who are either recent high school graduates or women already enrolled in college. Included in the award is the Barbie Hernandez “Wise Latina” scholarship, which was established in honor of the late community leader. In order to qualify, candidates must have attended a minimum of three Latinas in Progress Program sessions, which offer both personal and professional development.
The event was locally sponsored by H-E-B, Methodist Texsan Hospital, Valero and Texas A&M University San Antonio.
