The Hispanic League Needs Volunteers to Walk in the
Winston Salem Centennial Parade
Everyone loves a parade and The Hispanic League will be participating in the Winston Salem Centennial Celebration Parade this coming TOMORROW! . We are looking for approximately 25 people to walk with us. What a wonderful way to show our presence in the community, especially after receiving ECHO Award from the Winston Salem Foundation last week!
- We will carry our FLAGS that we use for Fiesta -- PAT GARDEA will be coordinating those who want to carry a flag. Please call Pat at 336.403.2332 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm you want to carry a flag and which countryNO LATER THAN THURSDAY AFTERNOON!!.
- We will be walking in the 1990's Decade since that is when we had the first FIESTA (1992).
- Please wear a Fiesta T-Shirt, Middle School Achievers T-Shirt or Costume of your Heritage to represent the Hispanic League.
- There will be a Party in the Plaza afterwards with live music. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to share with each other.
- A shuttle will be available immediately after the parade is over, but if you plan to stay and take part in the Party in the Plaza, you should plan to either walk back to the starting area or have an alternate means of transportation to return to your vehicle.It has been suggested we should have a few cars parked closer to Corpening Plaza so transportation back to the Gateway Area is easier.
- WXII will be providing live coverage of the parade so you might see yourself on TV that night.
- Board Members Guillermo Alvarez and Mary Dickinson will be near the check in area with a Hispanic League Banner - so look for them to know where to gather.

We are most thankful for the very generous support of Modern Nissan, our naming sponsor for Spanish Nite 2013. They provided a special "Pre-Event Reception" for all the Scholarship Recipients and their Sponsors. Rob Fowler and Eddie Hernandez hosted this great opportunity for the recipients and sponsors to meet or reconnect, since several of our sponsors are giving scholarships to the same students again this year.
One of the highlights of the evening was our Board President, Guillermo Alvarez, presentingMayor Allen Joines a letter on behalf of our Board of Directors stating our request to the Winston Salem City Council for a resolution to increase accessibility to higher education for our local Hispanic/Latino and immigrant community.
The keynote speaker, Felicia Arriaga, inspired us with her story of being from a migrant family background and overcoming obstacles to receive numerous scholarships to attend college and is now a PhD candidate at Duke University. Photo by Patrica Ortiz, La Noticia
In addition there was an wonderful Silent Auction raising over $4,000 with almost 100 items, including an original acrylic on canvas "The Eye of Nature" donated by Raul Montero, wonderful gift cards from several restaurants, an outdoor patio heater donated by Blue Rhino, spa treatments, and more!
The Top Sponsor Awards for 2012 were awarded to Modern Nissan, Allegacy Federal Credit Union, BB&T, Fermin Bocanegra, Food Lion, Hispanics In Philanthropy Funders' Collaborative for Strong Latino Communities, Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, Members Credit Union, Norsan Multimedia, PepsiCo, Reynolds American, The Millennium Fund, Time Warner Cable, and Truliant Federal Credit Union.
In recognition of those who have continued to support scholarships for the past 10 continuous years, the Hispanic League awarded the new Decade of Dedication Award. Every year since 2003, Hanesbrands Inc., Reynolds American, and PepsiCo. have believed and continue to believe in Hispanic/Latino students. They understand that a scholarship both opens the door to continuing education and provides an opportunity for recipients to serve as examples to other Hispanic youth to pursue a higher education. Thank you for helping students achieve their dreams!
Allison Norton-Rimron, VP of Finance of Hanesbrands Inc. and Hispanic League Board Member presented the Hanesbrands Inc. Hispanic Leadership Award to W.K. "Ike" Keener, President and CEO of Allegacy Federal Credit Union. With his leadership Allegacy has been instrumental in reaching out to the Hispanic community since 2000, creating several initiatives including Allegacy Español offices, The Center for Smart Financial Choices Spanish language financial education and money management classes, and hosting the monthly meetings of the Hispanic Services Coalition.

Last and certainly not least I owe a debt of gratitude to all our amazing volunteers who helped to make the evening a huge success - they covered the many details from the beautiful decorations and ticket/table coordination to organizing all the silent auction items and scheduling the many volunteers.
A special thank you to Xiomara Parra and Robert Garcia for co-chairing the committee. Likewise the Scholarship Committee, co-chaired by Allison Norton-Rimron, Diana Santos Johnson and Pauline Morris, dedicated countless hours to finding the sponsors to provide the 34 scholarships and matching the recipients- without their support we would not be able to provide the funds for the recipients to attend college.

Many thanks to the Piedmont Craftsmen Inc for hosting the event again this year in their beautiful art gallery. The hors'doeuvres were sponsored by Lowes Foods, glasses were donated by Downtown WS Partnership and Oscar Oviedo played wonderful Latin Music to entertain us all.
Peter Mikeal, our bilingual wine sommelier introduced us to wines from Italy France, Spain, Argentina and Chile. I believe the Malbec from Argentina was the favorite selection.

A Note from Liz Kelly
My name is Liz Romo Kelly, and I am a past scholarship recipient. In 2005-2007 this scholarship helped me to complete my education with a degree in respiratory therapy and now I have my own business, Greenlight Leasing LLC.
This year I was fortunate enough to be able to provide a scholarship for a student to attend college, Sandra Castro Cortes at Winston Salem State University.
Today, I am reaching out to you on behalf of the Hispanic League “Alumni Scholarship Fund”, because I want to make sure many other students that have financial difficulties succeed in their path to become educated.
Together we can make a big difference in our community. Providing Scholarships is the most important fund-raising priority at the Hispanic League.
By giving, the Hispanic League will continue to grow stronger and will continue to touch and change lives of many outstanding students of our Hispanic community.
Your support is very important to us.
