Alexis Valdez

Ms. Alexis Valdez 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. IDRA set up a scholarship in her name through the San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame. The San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame presented this scholarship award and others during a candlelight ceremony for graduating seniors at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy of San Antonio ISD. In addition, SAWHOF presented each graduate with a commemorative copy of the commencement address presented by Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel at the Our Lady of the Lake University graduation in May 2015. The text of the address is available online at www.idra.org. Congratulations to Ms. Alexis Valdez and to all the graduates of YWLA and OLLU!
