The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors issued a proclamation this morning designating September 15 to October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month in Fairfax County. MicroTech President and CEO Tony Jimenez and Chief Administrative Officer Paul Price were in attendance to witness this historic event.
National Hispanic Heritage month is celebrated throughout the United States to commemorate contributions made by Hispanic Americans. Since 1988, Hispanic Americans have been nationally recognized for their contributions in many professions and fields, including but not limited to education, law, government, business, science, sports, and the arts.
“I am very proud to live and work in a County that celebrates Hispanic American achievement. Fairfax most definitely understands that diversity matters,” Jimenez said.
