Latino Notebook: Latino OC 100 for 2008
By RON GONZALES The Orange County Register
Community heroes: Pepe Serna is an actor. Rigoberto Rodriguez is an assistant professor at Cal State Long Beach. Maria Wiese helps young people develop character through Learning for Life.
All are among the 2008 Latino OC 100 — among the most accomplished, influential and successful people, as well as unsung heroes, who are part of or serve Orange County's Latino community. This is the third year the list has been created from nominations to Stay Connected OC, led by its president, Ruben Alvarez.
A reception honoring the Latino OC 100 takes place Jan. 20 at the Delhi Community Center in Santa Ana. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
