November 14, 2019— Northern Kentucky University students received scholarships from the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati Foundation (HCCF). Seven students were honored and recognized at the HCCF’s annual gala on Nov. 7 at JACK Casino in downtown Cincinnati.

The gala acknowledged 28 Latino students from area colleges for their academic achievements, leadership beyond the classroom and commitment to serving the Greater Cincinnati community. HCCF hopes the scholarships will inspire other Hispanic students to pursue a higher education. Each scholarship recipient was awarded up to $2,000 in funding.
