UWM Roberto Hernandez Center celebrates Latino graduates and scholarship recipients

The Roberto Hernandez Center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee honors UWM’s growing population of Latino students with a Latino graduation banquet and the PALM (Promoting Academics in Latino Milwaukee) fundraiser. The No. 1 challenge Latino students face is access to sufficient funding to complete their degrees. PALM is an ongoing scholarship fund created to retain and graduate Latino students at UWM. Meet three students who received PALM scholarships. Hear how the scholarship made a difference to them and how they’re making a difference in the Milwaukee community.
