NAHJ Chicago presents checks to the 2020 scholarships recipients
We are proud and happy to share that we have presented the checks to our three 2020 scholarship winners.
The Chicago chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Chicago would like to congratulate Richard Requena, Luis Velazquez, and Samantha Aguilar for their dedication and eagerness to continue their path into journalism. We need every single one of you, your passion, care, and innovative ideas in our newsrooms.
Each student was awarded $4,000 to help fund their college career and help the organization achieve its goal of getting more Latinos in our newsrooms. This is all possible thanks to the support of NAHJ Chicago members and sponsors. During our annual “Nuevo Comienzo” fundraiser in February 2020, they helped us raise approximately $8,000! That is the largest amount raised since our fundraiser began in 2015.
