Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

by The 100 Companies

It’s National Hispanic Heritage month through Oct. 15. Originally, it was a week of celebration declared by President Johnson in 1968, and later expanded to a month in 1988 by President Reagan.

As a Hispanic-serving institution, we are proud of the heritage and contributions that Hispanics continue to make to our country and its economy. Nearly 45% of our students identify as Hispanic. We also have many Hispanic faculty and staff members who share in this month’s celebrations.

Follow us on our Facebook page to see all of their stories about family and traditions they have kept to this day.

– Dr. John Meyer, Hodges University
