Asusena Resendiz, president and CEO of the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, became the first Hispanic woman to be selected as a United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Master of Nonprofit Administration Fellow.
The fellowship, also picked by Wells Fargo and the University of Notre Dame, will allow Ms. Resendiz to study nonprofit administration at Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business. The program is the only one in the nation to offer a graduate degree to established nonprofit leaders.
"Through the MNA Fellowship, Asusena will have the flexibility to lead her local chamber while further cultivating her seasoned leadership skills," said Javier Palomarez, USHCC president and CEO, in a statement. "Our association is proud to play a role in her personal and professional development, and looks forward to celebrating her future success."
The program will allow Ms. Resendiz to study business leadership and managerial skills.
"Among the Foundation's chief goals is to equip our leaders with the tools necessary to reach their full potential as professionals, especially through educational opportunities like this one," said Nina Vaca, USHCC Foundation chairman, in a statement.
Ms. Resendiz previously served as president and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Irving for more than three years. The organization won the 2011 National Small Chamber of Commerce of the Year under Ms. Resendiz's leadership.
