Advertisers are beginning to take notice, but they want to wait a few issues to see the response to the redesign (which began with the March issue). Latin Media Ventures president Cynthia Lewis said the September issue will probably introduce four or five more high-end fashion ads. Prior to joining Latin Media Ventures, she was the founding publisher of Hearst Magazines' Shop Etc. She also worked as publisher of Harper's Bazaar and Marie Claire.
Last Thursday, Latina and Maybelline New York held its first Opportunities Through Education Scholarship breakfast. Five high school seniors were selected to each receive $10,000 college scholarships. — Amy Wicks
