Charles stood in front of the court and performed his energetic speech which described the cultural influences of Mexican culture here in the Valley and how it feels to be a performer. Charles competed against children and teens ages 8-18. He is the youngest member to ever win the event.
COURT APPROVES RESOLUTION HONORING DAVID CHAVANA
In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, Commissioners' Court approved a resolution in honor of Dr. Hector P. Garcia, who dedicated his life to the aid and improvement of the quality of life for Mexican-Americans. Garcia, a physician, war hero, and civil rights advocate, fought to bring attention to the Mexican-American civil rights movement through the American G. I. Forum, empowering Mexican Americans to fight numerous legal and political battles. Garcia, who died in 1996, was remembered for his national prominence as a civil rights leader, but also as a medical doctor with a kind heart who treated many patients for free. In attendance to receive the resolution were his daughter, Cecilia Garcia Akers, and her husband Jim Akers.
