On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens presented OSI Advisory Board member Veronica Cool, CEO of Cool and Associates and past chair of the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, with this year’s Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award. The awards recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market. Cool donated her $2,000 prize for the award to OSI-Baltimore.
Cool has worked for years to support Latino entrepreneurs in Baltimore. In May, Cool facilitated a meeting between OSI staff and representatives from Baltimore’s Latino community to discuss ways that OSI could deepen its connections and be more responsive to community needs.
