As part of the National Hispanic Heritage Month festivities, the Rochester Hispanic Business Association held the annual luncheon on September 25; acknowledging the work and public service life of one of our own. This year, it was an honor to celebrate the nomination of LaBella Associates CEO, Sergio Esteban. A Rochester resident for more than 2 decades, Sergio shared many kind words that touched all of our hearts. His years of dedicated work on many causes made him the Hispanic Person of the Year 2012.
As many other companies at the event, JR Language, had a booth showcasing their translation services, notably their Spanish translation and localization services. While at the exhibition, we had the opportunity to interact with other companies and members of the community.
The Spanish language is one of the common denominators of the Rochester Hispanic Business Association. As Spanish speaking members of the Hispanic community, we unite as one, regardless of our background: Argentina, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Spain, and the Dominican Republic, among others. The Hispanic Person of the Year is an uplifting award that celebrates great personalities, commitment to good values, and recognizes hard and selfless work.
Let’s continue to rejoice in the success of our community and help each other in the pursuit of a better world!
