Latina leader gets recognition
School Leadership Executive Director Nancy Bernardino has been named an Emerging Latina Leader by the Hispanic 100.
Launched in 2019, the Emerging Latina Leader (ELLA) Award is bestowed on a rising and influential Latina professional in the DFW-area who is making an impact on Latina women and girls through her engagement and leadership in community, profession and/or industry.
Bernardino was recognized for forging new avenues in the area of education by being the founding principal for the first STEAM-focused, all-girls school in Dallas ISD. She has also been instrumental in the opening of other schools with a similar focus and the all-boys SOLAR Preparatory. Bernardino currently leads the single-gender and hybrid schools as executive director
“It is such an honor to announce and celebrate these two outstanding and accomplished women, and so inspiring to see the impact they have in our community,” said Silvana Rosero, president of The Hispanic 100, during the ceremony in which Bernardino was one of the honorees. “They embody our mission of serving as a catalyst for increased participation of Hispanic women in employment, procurement and social issues.”
The Hispanic 100 is a network of D/FW-area Latina leaders who are committed to increasing business development opportunities for Hispanic, women-owned businesses and to promoting Hispanic women’s leadership roles in the private and public sectors.
