Our 100 Hispanic Women of Westchester’s mission is to lead Latinas toward excellence in leadership. And what better way to exemplify this is by recognizing four local high school students; Cynthia Paz, Jamila Jimenez, Jennifer Madrid, and Michelle Silva and award them with scholarships that will help them with expenses to go to college. We want to continue to encourage more Latinas to pursue higher education!
