Ms. Lea Amber Borrego has been selected as this year’s Martha A. Hernández Scholarship recipient. During her life and in her work at IDRA, Ms. Hernández distinguished herself for exceptional professionalism, service and care of others. In her honor, IDRA set up a scholarship in her name through the San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame. This year, all scholarships awarded by the San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame were directed to graduating seniors at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy of San Antonio ISD. IDRA commends Ms. Borrego for reflecting these same characteristics in her scholarship application and wish her success in college and in life.
