President & CEO
Dear CHCI Friends,
After 11 years at the helm of CHCI, our President and CEO, Esther Aguilera is moving on to pursue other opportunities. On behalf of the entire board, I thank Esther for her years of service. She will always be part of CHCI's great legacy of leadership. Esther has grown and expanded CHCI's scope and reach. Her efforts have grown our existing, premier programs, internships and fellowships, and expanded our offerings in the high school pipeline with Ready to Lead and Ready to Lead NextGen. Her passion for our mission has transformed lives and opened new pathways to opportunity and success for so many of our Latino leaders that we now count as alumni across the country.
During our transition, please continue to work with our dedicated executive team, Carmen Joge, William Gil, Ruben Gonzales, Gloria Garcia, and Debby Blazquez. I look forward to working with each of you in the coming months in support of our mission to develop the next generation of Latino leaders. And know I am available to you at any time as is our Vice Chair, Cristina Antelo.
Rep. Linda T. Sanchez
