SA Native Montez (far right) has been nominated for the 2020 Coors Light Líder of the Year program.
San Antonio's Richard Montez, Director of Member Services
for the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), is a finalist in a program that recognizes emerging Latinx community leaders with a $25,000 grant.
Coors Light's Líder of the Year program nominates 12 Latinx leaders between the ages of 21 to 39 based on their community involvement. A public vote decides the winner, whose nonprofit receives the grant money.
A SA native and St. Mary’s University grad, Montez has served at HACU since 2017, helping the nonprofit champion Hispanic success in higher education. He also chairs the board of Inner City Development, a nonprofit that serves the economically marginalized West Side neighborhood where he grew up.
Voting starts Monday, August 3 on the Líderes program website
and runs through August 31.
