The Hispanic Forum of Bryan/College Station is preparing for their annual scholarship gala to be held Saturday, July 16, at the Brazos Center. The organization’s goal is to give more than $100,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors from the B/CS area. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
According to the Hispanic Forum website, the mission of the Hispanic Forum is to unify the residents of the community, state, and nation to address social, educational, political, economic, and cultural issues that impact Hispanics and every resident in B/CS.
Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the United States. According to the Hispanic Forum website, if this sizable population is to continue contributing to the region’s success, it is necessary to provide new opportunities and needed services through active community attention. By constructing a more effective voice for the Hispanic community, the Hispanic Forum works to create a better life for all members of B/CS.
