Nov. 12 | Miami, FL – HNBA National President Benny Agosto, Jr., Finance Director Miguel Pozo, Executive Director Zuraya Tapia, Events Director Erika Lopez Tello, Region VIII President Teresita Chavez Pedrosa, and other HNBA leaders and members throughout Florida joined over 3,500 Florida leaders, lawyers and law students at the Kozyak Foundation’s 8th Annual Minority Mentoring Picnic. “This year’s picnic was bigger and better than ever and it was great to have HNBA’s national and regional leadership participating,” said event founder John Kozyak. “[The HNBA] tent was beautifully decorated and the large number of Hispanic law students attending the picnic received valuable advice during the picnic.” In addition to being a day of family fun, with complementary food and music, the Mentoring Picnic provides the venue for law students to meet and connect with potential mentors. Among this year’s attendees was Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy Quince. “The youth of our country need us to step up and support these types of events,” said President Agosto. “I am very thankful to the national officers and staff members that attended this event, and helped support the mission of the Kozyak Minority Mentoring Foundation while also spreading the word about the work of the HNBA,” added Chavez Pedrosa.
