Pepperdine Graziadio Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with Staff Spotlight Blogs
Each year from September 15 - October 15, the nation honors Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate the history and culture of the U.S. Latinx and Hispanic communities. The month long celebration commemorates how Hispanic communities have influenced and contributed to American society. The timing of Hispanic Heritage Month coincides with several Latin American nations celebrating their Independence Day. September 15th is Independence Day for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua and September 16th is Mexico’s Independence Day.
As we pause to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month this year, Pepperdine Graziadio is spotlighting our diverse staff, how they celebrate Hispanic heritage, how they support the Hispanic community, and what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them.
