HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Delaware Valley's Most Influential Latinos Foundation honored the 2012 Delaware Valley's 50 Most Influential Latinos on Thursday, November 29th, at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn's Landing. Maria Montero, the Executive Director Governor Corbett's Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs (GACLA) was recognized with an award. 

"I am honored to be selected and I am enthusiastic about our outreach to the Latino community throughout the commonwealth," Montero said. "As Governor Corbett's liaison to Pennsylvania's rapidly growing Latino population, I am passionate about sharing his agenda, which helps to address the needs of the community, and helps Latinos achieve academic and business success." 

GACLA, a 24-member advisory board, has focused its efforts on three of Corbett's priorities: A job for every Pennsylvanian, an educated and trained workforce, and a stable financial footing for the state. On the education front, GACLA will partner with DeSales University on December 12, 2012, to host an educational symposium highlighting several "best practice" schools that are achieving academic success for their students, especially Latino students.

For the past seven years, the Delaware Valley's Most Influential Latinos Foundation has recognized individuals who have made great contributions to the Delaware Valley's Latino community and the community at large.  The Delaware Valley's Most Influential Latino award was jointly developed by Impacto Latino Newspaper and the Philadelphia Multicultural Affairs Congress, a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau.
