The Latino Student Fund

June 10, 2021 Virtual Event


WELCOME Dear Friends and Supporters, Welcome to the Latino Student Fund’s (LSF) Annual Gala! It is an honor that you have chosen to join us this evening. The festivities tonight might look different, but they are a true celebration of our mission and a result of the tireless dedication of this year’s Gala co-chairs, Juan Jara & Brian Mack, Elsa V. Gomez, & Andres Echeverri, and Ashley & Doug Kollme. I want to express my deepest gratitude to them for the tremendous amount of time and energy they put into the planning and execution of our Virtual Gala. Additionally, the Gala Committee members have been a powerful and passionate team devoting countless hours to ensure the success of this event. I would also like to take a moment to extend a special thank you to the Ambassador of Spain, His Excellency Santiago Cabanas and Mrs. Sol Oyarzun Cabanas, for supporting our event and our cause. Since our beginning in 1994, the Latino Student Fund (LSF) has served over 4,500 students and their families in the Washington Metropolitan area. Today, the LSF offers eight programs under three programmatic areas: postsecondary success, academic support, and family resources.

These initiatives work together to serve students from pre-kindergarten up to 12th grade and encourage a culture of higher education from a young age while building a strong community that will sustain our program’s successes for generations to come. That next generation of students will represent a changed community, one that we at the LSF are working hard to adapt to. This year, we’ve offered all our programs virtually and expanded our tutoring program capacity. As the Hispanic community in the D.C. area grows, we must grow with it in order to mold the future leaders of that very community. In the spirit of celebration, I would like to welcome you to tonight’s celebration and thank each one of you for your continued investment in the future of today’s youth. On behalf of our Board of Directors, our dedicated staff and volunteers, as well as the students and families of the Latino Student Fund, we thank you for your continued support and participation Sincerely,

Fernando Barrueta Board Chair
