SCORE’s relationship with LCH has evolved over the last two years from an advisory capacity to their board to a full fledged partnership which is focused on bringing entrepreneurship and business practices to the large Hispanic community in southern Chester County. SCORE mentors John Jackson , Horace Scherer and Bob Fedor are regular members of LCH’s monthly marketing committee and often conduct special projects related to marketing and general business practices. This is expected to continue indefinitely as the CEO, Margarita Mirkil and the Chair, Alice Moorhead have deemed this an invaluable assistance to LCH. Over the last year the relationship between SCORE and LCH has led to the formation of a workshop “Business Skills for Success for Latino Entrepreneurs”. LCH is the host and a key marketing force behind this effort. In the Fall of 2013, 15 clients graduated from this 8 week course. This has grown to about 30 clients for the current 2014 spring course. Horace Scherer is now a key instructor in the program. This effort has garnered very favorable media and political attention for both SCORE and LCH.
