Los Hermanos Familia of Lubbock, a non profit that promotes family engagement, seeks to award 11 individuals in medical, business, law, education, military, church, media, athletics and more. In addition, a Lifetime Achievement Award that will honor an individual who has continuously paved the trail for others.
“By promoting Hispanic male leadership in the Lubbock community, Los Hermanos Familia strives to strengthen families. More so, as a community it is important to recognize these men who have been and are blazing the trails for others,” said Frank Garcia, Event Co-Chair.
Adelante, a Spanish word that means onward, describes Hispanic men who work tenaciously for the greater good of their community that have made, or are making an impact on past, current, and future generations.
Members of the community can submit a nomination for an individual in the respective category, and an independent, anonymous panel of judges will determine the recipients. Awards will be given during the Adelante Awards Banquet, to be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015.
“This is long overdue and we have many individuals that are deserving of these awards,” said Christy Martinez-Garcia, Event Co-Chair.
