A MOSTe Heartfelt Thank You

“Inspiring.”  “ Powerful.”  “Proud.”  “Remarkable.”

These are just a few of the comments I heard from many of you.  Our 18th Annual Lanterns Awards Luncheon will be remembered for the motivating words from our students, the sage advice and wisdom shared by honoree Nicole Duckett Fricke and the heartfelt closing comments from Executive Director Alejandra Valenzuela.

Today I am feeling such an overwhelming amount of gratitude toward all of you, our sponsors, donors, and mentors. We rely on you to achieve our mission to mentor and empower the next generation of college­-educated women. Your generous response in the room yesterday was historic and, as Alejandra said, confirmed that “MOSTe is on fire!”  If you would like to add a little more fuel to our fire, please click HERE.

Again, thank you for being with us.  We look forward to seeing you all in April 2019!

With gratitude,

Cindy M. Lopez
MOSTe Board President
