Mariano Rivera Honored by Latino U College Access

The former New York Yankees legend and long-time closer Mariano Rivera, along with his wife Clara, were honored this month by Latino U College Access. Latino U is a non-profit organization that provides guidance and services to Latin Students who are the first in their respective families to attend college. This was Latino U’s third annual event and benefit and the third time they handed out their Community Partner Award.

Here is a quote from the event by Latino U College Access founder Shirley Acevedo Buontempo:

"We are honored to present Mr. and Mrs. Rivera with the Community Partner award for their support of our scholars. The Mariano Rivera Foundation is dedicated to working today to build a better tomorrow, and that aligns beautifully with Latino U's mission to increase college enrollment and completion rates among Latino youth to ensure the success of future generations."
