SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY –
The Mexican American Hall of Fame calls upon the community to gather on August 27th, 2011 to recognize five outstanding San Joaquin residents as they will join San Joaquin County’s list of the County’s Latino influentials.
The 2011 inductees are; Amelia Moreno, Gene Acevedo, Rosalva Garduno, Ruben Garza and Yolanda Tejada.
The Mexican American Hall of Fame was formed to, “Recognize individuals that have made significant and extraordinary contributions for the advancement of Hispanics, Establish role models for youth, encourage early involvement in community affairs; and, preserve the contributions and the Hispanic culture in our society,” reads the 2009 induction ceremony program.
In past years individuals such as Astronaut Jose Hernandez, Activist Dolores Huerta, Dr. Guillermo Vicuña, and Directors John Solis, Jose Rodriguez, Jessie Garza-Roderick, Ph.D., Carol Ornelas, Dr. Gracie Madrid and many other dedicated community individuals have been honored since the late Veto Ramirez founded the organization in 1989.
