Catarino and Evangelina Hernández were Mexican immigrants who made their home in Texas beginning in the 1950s. Among their children and grandchildren are college and public administrators, health professionals, and businesspeople. Like many other citizens of Mexican heritage, they were as proud of their roots as of their new homeland. The Fellowship recognizes that their story, like the stories of all Latinos, is worthy of investigation, preservation, and illumination for generations of Texans to come.
