This Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), NBC Latino honors 20 achievers who are moving the needle in their respective fields and making our communities and our nation better. These honorees are fiercely proud of their heritage, which has informed and guided their work and inspired their accomplishments. Whether it be a park ranger or supermodel, a Harvard law professor or a student journalist, a philanthropist or marine scientist… these Latinos reflect the diversity of identities, backgrounds and talent that define and shape the U.S. Latino experience.
The inaugural list of honorees include well-known names and some not so well-known -- all doing extraordinary work. "The NBCLatino20 is a wonderful reflection of our Latino diversity," says NBC Latino managing editor Sandra Lilley. "Whether we are nationally known or working tirelessly without much recognition, our 20 Latinos show that despite our different professions and backgrounds, so much of who we are and what we do stems from our proud Hispanic heritage." The honorees were chosen from recommendations from our NBC family, contributors, community activists and scholars.
