María Elena Salinas is hoping to inspire this year’s graduates…
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) will host a virtual graduation celebration on June 6 to commemorate the organization’s graduating college seniors, and the 65-year-old broadcast journalist, news anchor and author will give the keynote address.
Following social distancing recommendations dictated by the CDC, graduations across the country to date have been altered, canceled, postponed or held virtually.
The nation’s largest association for Hispanic journalists will honor NAHJ member college graduates on Saturday, June 6 at 1:00 pm ET.
Multiple commencement addresses will be given by industry leaders in the field to share advice and words of inspiration to the Class of 2020.
In addition to Salinas, who is considered the “Voice of Hispanic America,” students will also hear from Maria Hinojosa, José Díaz-Balart, Fin Gómez, Robert Hernandez, Obed Manuel-Estrada, Joy Diaz and more.
“Our mission is to help the professional advancement of Hispanics in the news industry,” said Alberto B. Mendoza, NAHJ Executive Director. “We focus heavily on our students and are committed to being there from the beginning of their careers.
Young journalists play an essential role in the field. On June 6, NAHJ invites all community members to join and watch this memorable event.
