Outstanding Men, Exemplary Lives
El Diario is proud again to be able to recognize the career of Latinos who consistently are paving the way for others in the Capital of the World.
This year they are eighteen Latinos that will take to their homes, offices or businesses the Premio El (“He Award”) created by this newspaper.
For several years we have recognized the effort, perseverance, creativity, talent, honesty, courage and contribution to the community by prominent men who have managed to gain a place and respect in the various fields in which they operate.
The 18 distinguished Latinos who will be recognized this year have much in common despite forge their goals from different trenches. These are people who started from the bottom, with clear objectives and eagerness to serve. They want to make a mark for future generations.
They are human beings who know the challenges of the Latino community in New York and the United States. They insist in remembering where they came from and willing to lend a hand to those who come after them.
These prominent Latinos have demonstrated the potential and influence of the Latino community in business, politics and activism.
Let’s celebrate their achievements.
