Belmont University recently received the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Commitment to Outstanding Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award, presented at the organization’s 14th annual closing reception of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The event was held on the 27th floor of the Nashville City Center in downtown Nashville.
During Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15), the NAHCC recognizes the professional, civic and business contributions of its members while recognizing non-members whose involvement had a meaningful impact on the community at large. Nominees are selected from those who have demonstrated commitment and leadership to the advancement of the organization, the Hispanic community and Nashville.
“On behalf of the NAHCC Board, I congratulate the recipients of our 14th Annual Hispanic Heritage Month Awards. We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize those whose work and achievements have been vital to the empowerment, growth and appreciation of Hispanic businesses and our community at large” said Yuri Cunza, NAHCC President & CEO, in a press release. Award recipients are selected by an independent committee and are chosen based on their contributions, outstanding accomplishments, quality of service, civic and business leadership and commitment to the Hispanic business community and the city of Nashville.
Joyce Searcy, Director of Community Relations at Belmont, was also honored at the event with the NAHCC’s Outstanding Service Leadership Award.
