Starting this September, Nogales High School is celebrating Latin Heritage Month.

Latin Heritage Month runs from September 15 to October 15. This is the month for all Latinos to be proud and celebrate their heritage, culture and background. The months of September and October are also when multiple Latin American countries celebrate their anniversary of independence.

According to the Hispanic Heritage Month website, this is the time of the year where, “Americans observe… by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.”
