I invite you to read this beautiful recounting of an exquisite summit that took place last September of the Mexican American School Board Association (MASBA) by Dr. Emilio Zamora. I am so incredibly honored to have received their "La Campana" award and recognition with a mariachi serenade directed by Dr. Richard Carranza together with a beautiful, loud-ringing bell that—like Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla—positions me to toll the bell of the revolution! A revolution of the heart, no less. 💗 I could not be more honored.
Hats off to Immediate Past President Jacinto "Cinto" Ramos Jr., Interim Executive Director, Dr. Abeladro Saavedra, and Associate Executive Director Vincent Tovar for organizing a powerful summit. And congrats to current President Ana Cortez who was sworn in at the conference, successfully earning her place at the table as one of very few women ever to lead this organization.
Thanks, as well as to Dr. Zamora, who was so inspired by what he observed that he decided to write this informative piece that celebrates and honors MASBA's social justice agenda and exemplary leadership.
