Martha Noyola, assistant director of the student of color outreach program in the St. Cloud State Office of Admissions, was named one of "25 on the Rise" by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Minnesota (HCCM). The honor is in recognition of Noyola’s commitment to excellence, which has made her an outstanding Latino role model and leader, according to the HCCM.
Noyola has worked with women field workers for the United Farm Workers Union. She also has served as a project coordinator for the National Latina Health Organization, where she headed a project on eradication of violence against women within Latina/o communities; and as an advocate for battered women, undocumented families, new refugee families and the GLBT community.
