The “Ohtli” is awarded to distinguished individuals who through their
work have contributed to the betterment of our community and Mexicans
living abroad. “Mario Carrera is an example of determination and hard
work rewarded with success. He is a reflection of the benefits and
positive impact that immigration has in the host country. Mario has not
forgotten his roots, traditions, culture and most important, he is
always willing to share his experience and knowledge with others,”
stated Adrian Garcia, Acting Consul General from the Consulate General
of Mexico in Denver.
“In a sense, the ‘Ohtli’ award recognizes the dreams and aspirations of
a nine year old Mexican immigrant boy that came to the United Stated in
the early seventies, with the desire and mission to bring both sides
together… For me, an example is the fulfillment of that mission in
the passion and interest of our community in education and creating a
level playing field for every one, because it brings people together
and is a channel for upper mobility. The Ohtli for me continues to
inspire and provide confidence to persevere and carry on,” emphasized
Carrera during his remarks.
The Consulate General of Mexico in Denver recognizes Mario Carrera and
his effort for the benefit of the Mexican and Hispanic community in the
United States, and reaffirms the commitment of the Mexican Government
with its communities abroad.
