Negocios Now, a business-oriented Hispanic newspaper in Chicago, has named NLU’s Monica Ramos to its inaugural list of “Latinos 40 Under 40 in Chicago.”
Ramos is in good company, since the list also includes Jose Abreu, first baseman for the Chicago White Sox; Carina Sanchez, Chicago’s deputy clerk; Silvana Tabares, Illinois state representative from the 21st district; Dan Ponce, a WGN-TV news anchor; Julio C. Rodriguez, president of Dulcelandia Candy Stores, Susana Meza, vice president of Wintrust Bank, and other notables.
“Just as we had anticipated, the honorees are young Latinos with tremendous talent who not only give their legacy for the Hispanic community, but for society as a whole,” said Clemente Nicado, publisher and editor-in-chief of Nicado Publishing Company, owner of Negocios Now. “They are the present and the future of this city and we are very proud to have them as part of our first list of Latinos 40 Under 40 in Chicago.
Monica Ramos is Director of Family and Community Engagement at NLU.
