CEO Lozano: Education key to American Dream

Apr 6, 2018

Despite challenges, the American Dream is alive and well, and education is the key to making it happen, Monica Lozano, the spring Patricia Adams Lecture Series keynote speaker, said Thursday during her keynote address.

Lozano, currently the president and CEO of the College Futures Foundation, knows this is true because her family is a living example. She spent 30 years at La Opinión, the largest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country, rising from the editorial department to become publisher and CEO, a position she held until 2016.
