Last week, Two Rivers ALMAS student group was awarded the 20th annual La Familia Latino Heritage Award 2023 and was honored at a community celebration at the Landmark Center in St. Paul. 

This award is presented to leaders in the community who support and contribute to the success and growth of the Minnesota Latino community. ALMAS (Anglos Latinos Motivados a Superarse) student group, led by Two Rivers teacher Rob Hanson, has been engaging the community for over 20 years with successful anti-tobacco actions at the legislative level, cultural preservation through their popular folkloric dance group and cultural events plus countless student-led community service initiatives. Congratulations to our amazing students who continue to do great things!
