CHCI ANNOUNCES 2014
CHAIR'S MEDALLION AWARD
CHCI and its Chair Rep. Rubén Hinojosa are proud to announce that Juliet V. García, Ph.D. will be awarded one of its highest honors—The Chair’s Medallion Award—in recognition of her accomplishments, leadership, and outstanding service to the Latino community at CHCI’s 37th Annual Awards Gala on October 2, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
“It has been my most sincere privilege to serve the people of South Texas, to help tell the myriad of stories that each dream for themselves and for their families, to witness their struggles against great odds to earn a degree and launch a career and to understand the vast potential of the people of this region that for too long have been denied the opportunities that come from obtaining a college degree,” said Dr. García.
“I am so pleased to recognize and celebrate Juliet García and the amazing work she has done and continues to do on behalf of Latinos and Americans in South Texas,” said Chair Hinojosa. “Her leadership has led to her being recognized as one of the ‘World’s 50 Greatest Leaders’ by Fortune magazine and her personal path and many professional successes prove that the American Dream is achievable through higher education, hard work, and most importantly by giving back to our community.”
