New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–December 5, 2007–HITN-TV, the first Spanish-language educational and cultural network in the U.S, is proud to continue supporting exceptional education in one of the fastest growing demographic groups in the U.S. The funds that HITN-TV has donated to the Blue Ridge School will be allocated into a scholarship fund that will finance the education of deserving Latino young men for the next several years.
HITN sees this monetary contribution as an investment in the talent and potential of the young Hispanic population. “We feel proud to contribute to the scholarship fund of the Blue Ridge School as we continue in our mission to help strengthen and educate the Latino community, and help them ultimately to reach their full potential,” Said Jose Luis Rodriguez, HITN-TV Founder and CEO.
