HCAC higher education scholarships

The Hispanic Community Affairs Council (HCAC) awarded 52 scholarships to local Alameda County students who will attend community colleges or continue their studies at universities throughout the country. The HCAC 31st Annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon was held on May 3, 2013 at the Newark-Fremont Hilton Hotel, Newark, and dedicated to Terry Roderick-Alderete "whose life epitomized this organization - to promote the value of education, cultural diversity and community involvement."

Students have applied and been accepted at Yale, MIT, UC Berkeley; Cal Poly SLO, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, CSU East Bay, Santa Clara University, San Francisco State and Mills College. Students will also be attending community colleges including Chabot, Las Positas, Merritt, Ohlone and Laney.

"Getting into medical school is one of the greatest achievements of my life. It is an unbelievably long and competitive process and I'm thrilled to begin school at USC Medical School this Fall. My goal is to help under-served people in our Hispanic communities as a primary care physician. I am so grateful to the HCAC and intend to give time and financial assistance so that other Hispanic students might afford their future educational dreams," said scholarship-recipient Evelyn Martinez-Salazar, Union City.

HCAC, a non-profit organization, has given scholarships exceeding $1.5M to more than 2,000 students since 1983.
