This past week, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) honored Congressman Rubén Hinojosa at our Farewell Ceremony as he will retire from Congress at the end of his term. For decades, Rep. Hinojosa has been a champion for the underserved, using his knowledge on various issues to help create a more equal and just society for his constituents and for all Americans. One of the areas where Rep. Hinojosa’s passion for service has left an indelible mark is education.
That’s why CHCI partnered with Excelencia in Education and The University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley to create a video about Rep. Hinojosa’s legacy of advocating for greater access to educational opportunities. The video documents history with the purpose of inspiring future generations. From his leadership as CHCI’s Chair, to his work in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Hinojosa’s impact on the education of young Latinos will always be remembered and honored.
