Congratulations to Dr. Yolanda Reyes Guevara

Congratulations to Dr. Yolanda Reyes Guevara, who graduated from the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber’s Latina Leadership Institute (LLI) on Oct. 21. She was also appointed interim dean of Student Success for NVC.

The mission of LLI is to increase the number and influence of Hispanic Women in elected and appointed office positions in the United States. By doing so, it hopes to impact a change to the current political landscape.

The program provides a highly personal experience that is tailored to help each Latina leader cultivate skills that have never before been taught in one single program, with facilitators including local community and political leaders. The Latina Leadership Institute also provides a safe environment for learning and skill practice. LLI will begin their search for Cohort 8 in February 2023.

“I am very thankful to have been given the opportunity to participate in a program designed by Latina leaders for Latina leaders,” said Yolanda, who is NVC’s director of Enrollment. “I am also grateful for the support of my leadership in Student Success.”
