HABLA Seeks Nominations For Hispanic Leaders Making A Difference In Charlotte, NC

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the city with the fastest growing Hispanic population in the nation, Charlotte is giving rise to Hispanic entrepreneurs, executives, civic officials, community leaders, and budding students. With the Hispanic Achievement and Business Leadership Awards (HABLA) program nominations now open through September 16th, judges will have a wealth of talented local Hispanic business and civic leaders, who have made meaningful contributions to the community, to choose from.

  • Unsung hero

In addition to recognizing Hispanic professionals and community leaders, the program is an opportunity for budding Hispanic students to be acknowledged for their contributions as they evolve into tomorrow's leaders.
