Staff win awards for science,
In October, Paty Romero-Lankao, deputy director of ISSE, was awarded
the Latina Leader Award in Science from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
The award, which recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding Latinas
in their respective professional arenas and their impact on the Latino
community, cites Paty’s notable contributions in the area of science
and her role as a model for young people.
Also in October, Dorothy Bustamante and Raj Pandya were honored
at the Boulder County Community Action Program’s 19th Annual Multicultural
Awards Banquet. The awards recognize people who make significant contributions
to the community and help further the program’s mission of reaching
out to youth and low-income residents.
Dorothy, an administrator in CISL, won an award in the government
category for her work with the Boulder County Latina Women’s League,
where she sits on the board of directors and mentors Latina students.
She is also a board member of the YWCA, whose mission is to eliminate
racism and empower women, and a member
of Boulder Community United, an organization which works
to stop hate crimes, discrimination, and racism in Boulder County.
Raj, director of SOARS, won an award in the science category
for his work encouraging students from minority populations
to participate in the atmospheric and related sciences, as
well as for leading UCAR/NCAR’s
Africa Initiative. Raj is also on the board of the I Have
a Dream Foundation of Boulder County, whose mission is to
help disadvantaged students succeed academically and attend college.
