Cintrón believes in the power of film to educate, entertain, and empower. As early as high school, she recognized how film can be a transformative and educational medium.

The Coors Light Líderes program which launched in Denver, Colorado 10 years ago, demonstrates Coors Light ongoing commitment to embrace the values that encourage people to take on challenges and explore new opportunities. For the past decade, Latino leaders in the program have risen to the occasion to achieve success and make a difference to empower their communities.

Alberto Senior, who leads MillerCoors national Latino community efforts, said “It is heartwarming to return to Denver where the Coors Light Líderes program was launched and to recognize JoAnna and the outstanding achievements of all past líderes. JoAnna is a great success story that will inspire others and a tireless advocate who is promoting the voices of Latinos. On this special occasion of our 10th year, I am delighted to recognize JoAnna’s work and partner with her on a program that will benefit the Latino community in Denver.”

The Coors Light Líderes program has recognized and highlighted the achievements of emerging Latino leaders through an online public voting competition, a national and local advertising campaign and robust community outreach. Cintrón was among 12 Latino leaders nominated by local and national nonprofit organizations for their leadership and contributions to their communities. Cintrón was named Coors Light Líder of the Year in November 2015.

Coors Light Líderes aspires to new and unique heights. The 10th anniversary celebration will commemorate the fact that the program has been honoring and supporting emerging Latino leaders since 2006. The projects developed by the Coors Light Líderes grants have promoted leadership, education, environment responsibility, and business while providing aspiring leaders a broad range of networking and professional growth tools, empowering them to go further. The 2016 public call for nominations will begin on April 19, 2016. For more information visit www.CoorsLightLideres.com and join the conversation on Twitter using #CoorsLightLideres.
