Juan Sanchez speaks to students at one of HSF's Outreach events that took place during the 2009-2010 academic year. Read this issue's Take Note to learn about the impact of these events.
With August half over - and fall quickly approaching - we wanted to take a moment and thank you, our alumni, for your dedication to the future of Hispanic youth. We recently conducted a survey and focus groups asking our alumni how we can better support achievement in your professions and communities. More than 600 of you shared your thoughts with us, and almost every person expressed a desire to help by giving back to the next generation and connecting with other HSF alumni. In fact:
- Ninety-eight percent of respondents thought it important to help the next generation of students realize that college is possible.
- Eighty-two percent of survey respondents said that it was very important to be able to network with other alumni.
You asked us for opportunities to learn about the experience of other alumni, and gave us great ideas about ways to share new information.
We listened! In October, we will launch our Get Involved section on the alumni pages of the www.hsf.net. You'll find activity suggestions, such as volunteering at one of our high school outreach events, sharing your inspirational story with local entities such as your chamber of commerce, or attending an alumni reception. The site will also provide easy to use tips and tools to support your success in these endeavors.
We are excited to share this new resource with you and will send more details soon.
At HSF, we seek to put "a college degree in every U.S. Latino household" to strengthen our communities and country. In partnership with our remarkable alumni network, we can make a meaningful difference for Latino students and their families.
And making a difference is what it's all about. This is why we feature Dr. Gabriel Sanchez in this month's Opportunity Knocks. Dr. Sanchez is making his mark in the world of academia through his research and by mentoring students.
We are always looking for ways to deepen our relationship with and among our alumni. Join the HSF Alumni Network to connect with others like you and pass on your experiences and opportunities.
While youth in academia is often a handicap, Dr. Gabriel Sanchez has turned it into an advantage. He is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of New Mexico (UNM) in Albuquerque, and leading scholar on the impact of racial and ethnic diversity on the U.S. political system.

While research shows that Latino parents want their children to go to college, they are largely uninformed about the process. HSF is doing its part to educate more families about the college-going process through our nationwide outreach events.
