Miriam Hernandez named Twin City Trailblazer

Winston-Salem, NC - This year, in partnership with the Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the Delta Arts Center, the City of Winston-Salem Human Relations and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Department is excited to be implementing the inaugural Twin City Trailblazers Award, in honor of Women’s History Month. This award is in recognition of women who have been barrier breakers, leading leaders, and/or civil rights advocates in our local community.

Based on the exemplary work in and dedication to our community, Miriam Hernandez has been selected as one of the Twin City Trailblazers honorees! Miriam will be honored at the inaugural Women’s History Month program, featuring the Twin City Trailblazers, in addition to Female Firsts, on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

Miriam has eliminated numerous barriers to connect Crosby Scholars to the Hispanic community. She started our award winning Excelencia program to assist Hispanic girls and their families in learning about the benefits of education, as well as SHE - Show Help Employ - to introduce minority girls to STEM early in their education.
Congratulations, Miriam! Thank you for your leadership and dedication to Crosby Scholars as our Hispanic Outreach Coordinator over the last 11 years, and continuing to support our Hispanic Families in your retirement. We are better because of you!
