For the past 5 years the unit I direct at the University of Notre Dame, Nonprofit Executive Programs at the Mendoza College of Business, has been educating Latino and Hispanic leaders. The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation, with the support of the Wells Fargo Foundation, has been underwriting executive education at no cost to the participants. This video highlights one of our star students, Mark Madrid, who is the first recipient of the USHCC/Wells Fargo Fellowship for the Master of Nonprofit Administration degree at the University of Notre Dame. Our goal in both our degree and nondegree program is to develop exemplary leaders for the nonprofit sector. We do this by bringing only the best professors and instructors to the classroom who can share thier fire as experts in their field and ignite the ideas and passions of our students.
Mark Mardid is one of those remarkable students who not only is a top performer but uses the lessons taught in his organization and his life. He was valedictorian of both his junior high and high school class, and has overcome many personal challenges to rise to his current leadership position. Mark is currently the president of the Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and his mission is to “Share Fire” with others, to regift the good he has been given. He truly reflects the spirit of giving back that the University of Notre Dame seeks to instill in its students, faculty and staff. Take three minutes and find out about this extraordinary young man!
