Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) , a leading global nutrition company, recently announced a $22,500 donation to the scholarship program SOMOS El Futuro, which places Hispanic students in professional internships within the New York state government to work on health, well-being and financial literacy related issues.

The Ken Pick SOMOS Fellowship and Scholarship program was created in memory of Ken Pick, a Cuban American advocate dedicated to improving the lives of the Hispanic and Puerto Rican communities in New York-a mission shared by Herbalife.

“We are honored to offer Hispanic and Puerto Rican students the opportunity to gain work experience that will allow them to build on their professional and academic skills, as well as work on behalf of the Latino community,” said Angela Arboleda, Vice President of government and community affairs, Herbalife. “Through the SOMOS El Futuro Scholarship Program we want to remember Ken Pick and the years of unconditional service and work he dedicated to his community, as well as honor his family. Ken Pick continues to be a role model for Hispanic youth.”

Ken Pick dedicated the majority of his career and life to advocating for the issues most important to the Latino and Puerto Rican communities in New York, including education and economic development. His commitment to the Latino community led him to work closely with the New York State Assembly, the Department of Education, the Empire State Economic Development Corporation, and prior to his death, as Executive Director of the Puerto Rican and Hispanic Taskforce in the New York State Assembly and Senate.
