The Ibero-American Action League hosted its 19th annual Hispanic Scholarship Awards Gala Saturday night.
Held at the Rochester Riverside Convention center, the award ceremony recognized and granted 53 students with scholarships from around the area. It was the most they have ever granted.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate the achievements of local Hispanic students
and grant them the Hispanic Endowment Fund, along with other donors. Students are granted the scholarships based on their academic performance and community involvement.
"It has allowed them to make decisions. For example, are they staying home or are they going to stay at the college campus. Are they going to travel away based on the programs they're going to study, is it going to support tuition?" said Zory Martinez-Allocco, Director of Communications for Ibero.
The Ibero-American Action League has been serving this community for over 45 years.
