A Legacy of Service: Rep. Charles A. Gonzalez

CHCI is proud to share the following biographical article on former Rep. Charles A. Gonzalez.

Few people possess the inherent commitment to become a public servant. It takes a particular type of human being, selfless and hard-working in nature, to take on such noble yet strenuous responsibility. Rep. Charles A. Gonzalez, born with public service in his blood, is one of those individuals who not only has the natural ability, but the passion and commitment to make impactful and positive change for the community.

As Gonzalez has ended his time in Congress after seven terms, we look back on the man and the many contributions he has made to our nation, to our community, and to the future leaders of America.  Full story here

Most high school students don’t get to spend their Monday watching open heart surgery – but that is exactly what some of the 2012 High School Latino Leaders in D.C. alumni got to do on a recent visit to Mt. Sinai Hospital, located in New York City. On Monday, December 8, 2012 Stephanie Revilla, Melina Hernandez and Sabrina Moreno participated in a Career Day sponsored by Mt. Sinai Hospital, a sponsor of the 2012 High School Latino Leaders in D.C. program. The students shadowed various employees at Mt.
