Additional Information

The Zavala Hispanic Cultural Initiative is proud to host the 2011 Hispanic Leadership Banquet at the MPEC.

The banquet will feature a well known motivational speaker and comedian from Houston Texas: Shayla Rivera. Proceeds of the event will be dedicated to provide local Hispanic students with scholarships to attend colleges and universities.

The Zavala organization was begun in 2001 when Chuck Neale, Director of the Wichita Falls Community Foundation, and Carroll Wilson, then-Editor of Wichita Falls Times Record News noted the increased growth in the Hispanic population and the need to have Hispanics involved in community leadership positions.

With great pride and dedication, Zavala continues its commitment to preserve the unique cultural gifts of the Hispanic Heritage and to empower the Hispanic community to become fully engaged in overall community opportunities and challenges.

The Zavala Hispanic Cultural Initiative is a Non-Profit organization in Wichita Falls. Some of our goals include, helping the Hispanic population get into leadership roles in the community, and one day to build a cultural center to celebrate our culture.

Tickets can be purchased at First Bank, downtown Wichita Falls and at the MPEC Box Office.
