Governor Abbott Proclaims September 15-October15, 2023 Hispanic Heritage Month In Texas

~ The state of Texas has a long and storied history of Hispanic influence, and this legacy is celebrated each year during Hispanic Heritage Month. This year, Governor Greg Abbott has proclaimed the period from September 15 to October 15, 2023 as Hispanic Heritage Month in Texas.

The Spanish explorers who first ventured to the continent brought with them a bold and adventurous spirit that has been passed down through generations. This spirit was evident during the 1836 Revolution when Texians and Tejanos fought together for independence from Mexico.

Today, Hispanics have had a major impact on the Lone Star State in many ways. From art, literature, architecture, music and food to economic opportunities for entrepreneurs, Hispanics have left their mark on Texas culture. First Lady Cecilia Abbott is an example of how far one can go with hard work and dedication; she is the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants who rose through the ranks as an educator and philanthropist.
