Arizona Latina Trailblazers 2013
The fifth annual Arizona Latina Trailblazers community celebration was a big success. With generous support from Salt River Project, Latino Perspectives Magazine and the Raul H. Castro Institute at Phoenix College hosted a fun-filled evening in honor of Guadalupe Huerta, Narcisa Monreal Espinoza, Angie Ruiz Tewksbury, and State Senator Anna Tovar. (Read the March 2013 issue of LPM to learn more about these remarkable individuals.)
Over 200 guests enjoyed inspiring video vignettes about the lives of these remarkable women, hors d’oeuvres, and a special musical performance by Carmela Ramirez and her band, Carmela y Más. (Click here to watch the video vignettes).
Kathleen Mascareñas, media relations specialist at SRP, served as the event’s emcee. The program included remarks by Dr. Anna Solley, President of Phoenix College; Ricardo Torres, Publisher of LPM; and Tony Moya, Manager of Latino Relations at SRP.
