Rosie Molinary '96 knows most Latina girls in the United States do not have the same access to education that she enjoyed at Davidson, the Charlotte Observer reports. Molinary, a Puerto Rican woman who grew up in Columbia, S.C., is working to improve the odds that those girls achieve advanced education. In 2008, she formed Circle de Luz, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting local Latina girls through mentoring programs and scholarship.

The Observer article also features the work of Mary Kathryn Ross Elkins '01, who met Molinary when they worked for Davidson's Community Service Office and now serves as the program manager for Circle de Luz.
