Hermana Professional Development Scholarship

Proyetco HACER: The Gabby Oberti Hermana Professional Development Scholarship

Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. is proud to promote academic excellence throughout a lifetime of learning.  This scholarship was created in the memory of our Hermana Gabrielle "Gabby" Oberti, (August 30 1989 - February 13, 2014), to encourage and support our Hermanas in pursuit of advanced degrees and licensures.

Gabby was a determined and vivacious woman who was devoted to her family and Hermanas. She was full of creativity and was always there to help and lead with her bright spirit and loving nature.
