Dr. Emeterio M. Otero has been selected to receive this year’s Phoenix Award. The award is a notable tribute to Pete’s significant accomplishments, personal dedication and service on behalf of the Hispanic community.
The Phoenix Award was created by the New York State Hispanic Heritage Month Committee (NYSHHMC) to recognize “the struggles that many of our people experience and overcome on their long journey to reaching success,” says Carlos Medina, NYSHHMC co-chair. “You are a shining example of the greatness that our people can realize as long as we believe in ourselves and never give in to the many obstacles that we sometimes face.”
