Record year for SAAHJ Scholarship & Awards Gala

Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. (MHM) is excited to be a table sponsor of the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists (SAAHJ) Scholarship & Awards Gala. This annual event, now in its 17th year, will be held at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio on Friday, July 10.

This year, SAAHJ will honor Michael Quintanilla of the San Antonio Express-News for excellence in journalism, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), the national non-profit civil rights organization formed in 1968 in San Antonio to protect the rights of Latinos with SAAHJ's community service award, and Grammy award winner Vikki Carr for her extensive contributions to the Hispanic community, among other outstanding personalities with the second-ever Corazón de Oro award.

The gala promotes recognition of excellence and provides an opportunity for helping tomorrow's leaders succeed. Talented students will receive $40,000 – a record amount – in scholarships with the funds raised at the event.

"MHM couldn't be more proud to support the SAAHJ Awards Gala. This is not only an enjoyable event to attend, but the funds raised also help support San Antonio's brightest future leaders. It is fun with a purpose," shared Jessica Muñoz, director of communications at MHM.
