La Prensa Foundation Supports Education in San Antonio

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 6:18 AM

I had the pleasure recently to attend the La Prensa Foundation 2012 Leadership Awards. Founded by Amelia J. Duran, La Prensa Foundation has been supporting education in San Antonio for 13 years. The Foundation has awarded more than $2.3 million in scholarships to students seeking success through higher education. "It's a great honor for me to be recognized by your foundation, said recipient Roberto A. Lopez-Araiza. "It is a motivation to work harder and better for our community."


The awards gala, besides being a fundraiser for the foundation, honored twelve San Antonio citizens with Leadership Awards. All of recipients are successful in their careers and businesses. In addition, each of them contributes to the San Antonio community by involvement in civic leadership and multiple nonprofit organizations. Recipients included the Honorable Judge Peter Sakai, seen here with Tino Duran. For a full list of recipients, visit the La Prensa Foundation webpage.

Owned and published by Tino and Amelia Duran, La Prensa is the only independent and family-owned newspaper in San Antonio. "Tu Voz in Dos Idiomas" It is published in both Spanish and English. La Prensa gives a unique voice to community news, as well as covering national and international news.
