WKYC’s Russ Mitchell (pictured at right) was the emcee of the event, and in addition to music, and a keynote speech by Melody Gonzales (Executive Director of the White House Hispanic Initiative,) Hispanic Cleveland Scholarship Recipients and their families gave speeches of their experiences. 

More than $100,000 in scholarships were awarded to Northeast Ohio Latino/Hispanic college students, including a generous donation from WKYC Studios.

WKYC TV of Cleveland also aired a short segment on their news programs about our event, which we proudly feature below, and we’d like to thank all who attended for their ongoing support for our organization.
