Honoring Hispanic Heritage Month

By WILL HURD

 

September 15 to October 15 of each year marks Hispanic Heritage Month, a time to recognize, honor and celebrate the valuable contributions that Hispanic-Americans have made across our communities. While we pay tribute, this month is also a reminder that we must work together to ensure the continued success of future generations of Hispanic-Americans across South and West Texas.

 

An important way for us to do so is by leveling the playing field of educational opportunities, and there are nearly 500 Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) nationwide whose missions are to do just that. I am incredibly proud to serve as a co-chair of the Congressional HSI Caucus to support these universities that empower Hispanic students to complete their education and become valuable contributors to our workforce.
