It is an honor and a privilege for those of us who are part of Revista Latina to be here today to receive the 2022 Ohtli Award, the highest award for those who, during their pilgrimage around the world, have not hesitated, nor do they hesitate, to mark their path. This, so that the new generations of young Mexicans in search of opportunities to make or remake their lives, can follow them.
We express our deepest gratitude to the Government of Mexico and to the Consul General of Mexico in the Carolinas, Claudia Velasco Osorio, for delivering this great recognition.
On September 15, the Government of Mexico, through the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME) and the Mexican Consulate in Raleigh, NC, USA, awarded Revista Latina the Ohtli 2022 Award. The delivery ceremony was part of the civic event commemorating the 212th Anniversary of the Independence of Mexico, held at Flower Field in Dix Park. This award is granted once a year by the Mexican consulates and consists of an emblematic medallion, a silver rosette and a diploma.
Today, Governor Roy Cooper signed a State of Emergency in preparation for impacts from Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen. “It is important for North Carolinians to prepare for potential impacts from the coming storm,” said Governor Cooper. “The storm's path has been difficult to predict and we want to ensure that farmers, first responders and utility crews have the tools necessary to prepare for severe weather."
