Felicidades Dr. Therese Mosqueda-Ponce!

Dr. Therese Mosqueda-Ponce, Puente Counselor at Cypress College, was awarded the prestigious "Madrina" Award at last weekend's, 31st Annual Latina Leadership Network of the California Community Colleges Conference.

The Madrina Award of the Latina Leadership Network was established in 1992 to recognize the efforts of Latinas who have contributed their time and energy toward promoting the interest of Latinas in the California Community College system. Madrinas are individuals who demonstrate outstanding leadership skills and provide guidance and mentorship toward all Latinas. Their commitment to the goals of the organization is clearly evident by their actions. They are involved in professional organizations, support curriculum development, foster leadership training, build bridges with the community, and mentor and empower Latinas.

Congratulations, Therese, on this much-deserved honor!
