  • Hispanic Heritage Fact: Do you recognize any of the following names? Cesar Chávez, Pablo Casals, Joan Báez, Antonia Coello Novello, Henry Cisneros, José Carreras, Pele, Ellen Ochoa, Catherine Davalos Ortega or Sonia Sotomayor?  The answers are out there. Check out the resources on your computer. Learn about the contributions of these people and many other notable Hispanics. Look around your community and state. Do you see signs, billboards or advertising in Spanish?? Do you recognize words like patio, plaza, and names like Paseo Padre, Cabrillo, Portola, and Gibraltar? Cities such as San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and many other are words and phrases that come to us from the Spanish language. Look and listen to the world around you. You will be surprised to see the impact of Spanish in Fremont and beyond.  We hope that you have enjoyed these facts about Hispanic Heritage month. Remember that there are many contributors from Spain and all of the Central and South American countries not mentioned here. In addition, some of the countries of the Caribbean are Hispanic too. Raise your awareness of all cultural contributions by Hispanics to help you become aware of the influence of Hispanic culture and the Spanish Language in our world. Gracias!
