On June 2, 2017, La Raza newspaper and its Impremedia publishing house held the annual “Mujeres Destacadas” luncheon, an event that recognizes Latinas who have made unique contributions to the community in several areas.

During the past three years, La Raza has taken this opportunity to award a scholarship to a St. Augustine College student. This year Jeanette Figueroa was the fortunate recipient of a $ 1,000 scholarship to continue her studies at SAC.

We congratulate Jeanette Figueroa and thank La Raza Newspaper for its commitment and contribution to higher education!
