Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th through October 15th recognizing the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. The national commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Week began in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson. Twenty years later, President Ronald Reagan expanded the observation to a month.
