COLUMBUS– State Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) today honored National Hispanic Heritage Month on the floor of the Ohio Senate.

“Our nation is a melting pot of different people, cultures, and ideas and it is partly this diversity that that makes America strong,” said Manning. “The Hispanic culture has contributed greatly to Ohio and I’m proud to be a part of recognizing National Hispanic Heritage Month in the Buckeye State.”
 
National Hispanic Heritage Month was first observed in 1988 after it was officially enacted by President Ronald Reagan.
 
A representative of the Ohio Hispanic Latino Affairs Commission was on hand in the Senate Chamber to receive the award from the Senate.
