Gala Brings Together Hispanic Youths and Prominent Community Leaders
CHANTILLY, Va., June 17, 2013 – NMR Consulting is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Hispanic Hero Award Gala, a fundraising event that honors outstanding individuals – including entrepreneurs, executives and government leaders – who serve as role models to Maryland’s youth. The event is hosted by the United States Hispanic Youth Entrepreneur Education (USHYEE). Students who have won the USHYEE/Mirant Educational Grant are also recognized at the event.
In its seventh year, the Hispanic Hero Award Gala engages today’s Hispanic youth by bringing them together with prominent leaders in education, business and politics. Its goal is to inspire young people as they see achievement being recognized. The event, which will be held on June 20th, 2013, in Linthicum Heights, Md., is USHYEE’s only fundraiser and it provides the financial support for the programs it offers throughout the year.
“It is vitally important for young people to see hard work and dedication being recognized, to see that it is possible to create your own success,” says NMR CEO Dave Garcia. “We at NMR are proud to support USHYEE, as it helps young Hispanics reach their tremendous potential.”
The mission of the United States Hispanic Youth Entrepreneur Education (USHYEE) is to provide Hispanic youth with comprehensive and innovative tools, leading to enhanced opportunities for building successful individuals and businesses. USHYEE exists to serve young Hispanics desiring to pursue the “American Dream” through education and entrepreneurship. It offers leadership and educational grant programs, mentorship and youth summits. Its initiatives help teach students about financial literacy, entrepreneurship, workforce development, leadership skills and career opportunities.
