Message from Our President

Happy New Year in January, Happy Chinese New Year in February and Feliz Año Nuevo as we begin the Celebration of our 36th Anniversary for HCAC!

Now March is fast approaching!  It is coming in as a strong wind.  It is our most exciting month and March is definitely a month of ACTION.  HCAC Board of Directors is moving forward.  In the past 35 years, HCAC has awarded 2,400 Hispanic/Latino Students of Alameda County over $2 Million in scholarships.

The HCAC Board of Directors believes in our Mission Statement and are not paid for their hands-on efforts.  Witnessing Hispanic/Latino students receive scholarships is our reward.  We already are anticipating committee meetings for particular tasks in our process to award our students.  We continue to seek sponsors both past and new to fund these awards. We don’t know who will be awarded until we review applications and invite semi-finalists to be interviewed.  That is what requires ACTION from volunteers.  If you are able to volunteer in March, please contact any HCAC Board Member.  If you belong to a group that would like to participate by purchasing a table at our annual luncheon, please contact us.  By getting involved, you are able to meet some of our students, who will be our future leaders. The photos are our “Volunteer” and “Interviewer” lanyards; ready for YOU to wear!  Here’s how and where we need volunteers to assist with their expertise and skills.
