Lucia Herrera-Delgadillo Memorial Scholarship

Thereafter, Herrera-Delgadillo continued her commitment to education as a compassionate counselor at her alma mater, South Division High School, and at Riverside University High School. She empowered many young high school scholars living in Milwaukee, WI.
Herrera-Delgadillo’s dedication to promoting education continued with her involvement with the Hispanic Youth Career Fair and the Wisconsin Hispanic Council on Higher Education, as well as other numerous community involvements.
