PRESIDENT OF THE HISPANIC ARTS COUNCIL OF ST. LOUIS RECEIVES 'ST. LOUIS 2014 WOMEN OF ACHIEVEMENT' AWARD ALONG WITH NINE MORE WOMEN IN ST. LOUIS DEDICATED TO COMMUNITY SERVICE. 


Virginia Braxs (Cultural Enrichment)

Through Virginia Braxs’ leadership, St. Louis has become a more inclusive, richer community, embracing more cultures in its increasingly diverse society.

Originally from Argentina, Braxs moved to St. Louis in 1988 to pursue her own higher education. And she has gone on to help countless others achieve their academic dreams. Braxs is a former faculty member at University of Missouri-St. Louis and Webster University, and a current professor of Spanish, Latin American art history, and medical Spanish and social work at Washington University. But her work extends far beyond the university walls. Through one after-school program, she and her Washington University students travel to South County twice a week to assist dozens of Latino kids with college preparation.

And with her role as president of the Hispanic Arts Council of St. Louis, Braxs is promoting arts and education for the Latino culture even further. The group hosts cultural festivals, Hispanic concerts at The Sheldon Concert Hall and Latino art exhibits at The Sheldon Art Galleries to encourage inclusion and ethnic enrichment. In addition, the council’s higher education initiative, Universidad YA! (College NOW!), focuses on helping students and parents, who may not speak English, with college preparation, including a bilingual college fair each fall. “Education is the key to being able to contribute fully to society, so our goal is to empower Hispanic youth to be able to access higher education,” Braxs notes. “We are like the cultural bridge to empower the parents with the knowledge of the American education system, so they can help their kids.”

Braxs encourages the community to have an open mind to other cultures. “St. Louis has become a very diverse city very quickly, and knowledge is the best way to understand different ethnic groups, races, cultures and languages.” Attend a cultural festival or show, or contribute to a college scholarship fund for underserved Latino students, she says. “There’s always a way, if there is a will. If you elevate someone else, you are really elevating the whole community.” Visit www.woastl.org to read more about Ms. Braxs. The WOA organization will award the '2014 St. Louis Women of Achievement' award in a luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on May 15th. Tickets are available online at www.woastl.org


Adapted from  the Ladue News article on April 4th, 2014:  http://www.laduenews.com/society/charities-nonprofits/the-class-of-women-of-achievement/article_f9d7e412-548a-5e15-8c47-c0fc21198845.html
