Baruch Professor Héctor Cordero-Guzmán, chairman of the Department of Black and Hispanic Studies, was honored at the 5th Annual Latino Trendsetter Awards on June 23, 2006, held at John Jay College.

The awards were presented by DTM (Dominican Times Magazine), honoring the “Top Twenty Hispanic American Achievers” in areas including arts, entertainment, culture, community service, health, education, and corporate and entrepreneurial leadership.

"It is an honor to be selected for this award along with such a distinguished set of Latino leaders working in a number of fields and to be able to represent Baruch and the City University of New York," said Cordero-Guzmán.

TV host Isolda Peguero of Telemundo 47 was the master of ceremonies. Other awardees included Christina Diaz-Malone, director of National Initiatives, Freddie Mac; Quenia Abreu, president and CEO, New York Women’s Chamber of Commerce; Roberto Ramirez, partner, MirRam Group, LLC; and Armando Guareño, founder and executive director, LaCinemaFe Film Festival.

Accepting his award, Cordero-Guzmán noted that the success of the Latino population is directly related to the educational opportunities available and that Baruch College is “committed to providing those opportunities to any Latino student who wants to achieve academic and personal success.”
