Union Students, Staff Honored At Tomás Rivera Latinx Excellence in Education Awards

Huge congratulations to these Union Schools staff and students who received the Tomas Rivera awards Thursday night!

“Every year the Greater Tulsa Area Hispanic/Latinx Affairs Commission presents the Tomás Rivera Recognition Ceremony. In the few years since its inception, it has steadily grown to showcase the best Latino scholars in our city.”

Congratulations to Union High School students Ana Medina, Lilu Padilla, Michelle Escobedo, Rigoberto Gonzalez who are being honored as Scholars as part of the Tomás Rivera Latinx Excellence in Education Awards today, May 12 at 6 p.m. at Central Library Aaronson Auditorium, 400 Civic Center. Carmen de la Cruz, a paraprofessional at the 6/7th Grade Center, was also awarded the Tomas Rivera Award. 

High School Class Principal John Chargois is also being honored as a Hero in the same awards ceremony.

The awards are being announced by the Greater Tulsa Area Hispanic/Latinx Affairs Commission.

The event is free and open to the public. The event theme this year is “Education Empowers You” and will focus on the importance of education as a pillar to success and personal growth. The Tomás Rivera Latinx Excellence in Education Awards ceremony honors scholars and heroes in education who are making a positive impact on the Latinx community of Tulsa. The awarded categories are described below:

Heroes in Education: Outstanding citizens who work actively to support the Latinx community in education as a volunteer, parent, exceptional teacher, educational researcher, tutor and mentor, administrative staff and/or community member;

Scholars: Latinx students in their junior or senior year of high school with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, with 90-percent attendance in the first semester of their senior year and who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in extracurricular activities both in school and in the community.
