During the 2017 Angelo Del Toro Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute (PR/HYLI) student delegates from Western New York (WNY) were awarded three scholarships and one student achievement award. This annual student leadership institute in Albany features a mock session of the New York State Assembly. Students, who are sponsored by the RBE-RN West at Erie 1 BOCES, meet locally for five training sessions prior to the institute in Albany. Ruth Casillas, RBE-RN delegation leader, recently announced that the WNY delegation has three scholarship winners and one achievement award winner.
