In an effort to give permanent recognition to the award recipient, past, present and future, the Latino Chamber Development Corporation – Foundation Board of Directors has commissioned one of Pueblo’s most recognized artists, Mr. Ken Williams, to create a permanent and artistic Latino Lifetime Achievement “Wall of Fame”. The “Wall” is prominently placed at an institution for higher learning that holds the distinction of being a Hispanic Serving Institute, Colorado State University – Pueblo.
Inscription on the “Wall of Fame” reads: This recognition depicts the progress predicated on vision, dedication, hard work and courage. This wall serves as a historical recording for future generations. History has oftentimes overlooked the contributions of groups or individuals that operate outside the realm of those in power. This wall recognizes contributions and sacrifices that Hispanics/Chicanos have made in improving the quality of life for other minorities in the social, political and economic areas of the Pueblo Community.
