This week 46 Latino students in Oregon received college scholarships through the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. CFM is one of many companies making donations this year, helping HMCC to raise $128,000.
A $1,000 gift from CFM, combined with another $1,000 from respected educator Orcilia Zuñiga Forbes, supports one of this year’s recipients, Clara Mandujano of Hillsboro, a pre-law student at Oregon State University.
Since 1996, HMMCC has awarded almost $1 million in scholarships to nearly 450 Latino students throughout Oregon. The awards luncheon was held May 5 in Portland.
