Willowbrook celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

From Sept. 20 to 24, Willowbrook hosted a Spirit Week to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month! See the bottom image above to view each day's theme.

National Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 each year. It began in 1968 and was originally observed as “Hispanic Heritage Week” under President Lyndon Johnson, but was later extended to a month during President Ronald Reagan’s term in 1988.

According to www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov, “(This month) traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. (The goal is to) share history, heritage and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present.”
