National Hispanic Heritage Month

A statement from Jeff Kennedy, TwinStar CEO

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from September 15 to October 15 in the United States. During this month, we honor the history, heritage, and achievements of Hispanic Latino Americans whose ancestors came from Latin American countries, the Caribbean, and Spain. Communities throughout the U.S. celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month with festivals and educational opportunities.

We at TwinStar want to honor the contributions Hispanic Latino Americans made — and continue to make — within their communities. 

We proudly support our local Hispanic Latino American communities by being an active member of the Metropolitan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, supporting CIELO's mission in Thurston County, and sponsoring the Latinos Unidos Culture Club at Franklin Pierce High School in Pierce County.

As we celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’d also like to recognize our TwinStar members and staff who are of Hispanic and Latino descent. We’re grateful for the impact you and your ancestors have made. 

We hope you join us in celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month.
