Ramon Rivera Receives NFL Seattle Seahawks Hispanic Heritage Award

Ramon Rivera was presented the NFL Seattle Seahawks Hispanic Heritage Award at an assembly at Wenatchee High School on September 26th.  The award was a surprise. Rivera is the Director of the Mariachi Music Program in Wenatchee School District.

Upon accepting the award, a surprised Rivera teared up. “I may have to go cry for two hours after this,” he said.

The award recognizes the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market, and Ramon was selected for the Seattle Seahawks. Part of the award includes a $2,000 donation to an organization that serves the local Hispanic community. Rivera has selected the Mariachi program. Rivera will also be honored at the Seattle Seahawks vs Dallas Cowboys game on October 12th.
