Celebrations are moments to hug each other and to enjoy. Paradoxically, they’re also moments to look at ourselves and evaluate our journey. One of the Hispanic community’s favorite sons, and a friend of Al Día’s, Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera, spoke with us in light of the Hispanic Heritage Month.

Pedro Rivera, for those who don’t know him or might not remember him, has been the Pennsylvania Secretary of Education since 2015. Rivera was named by governor Tom Wolf, who recognized his successful path as Superintendent of The School District of Lancaster.

My brother Agustín, Electrical Engineer, and my brother Raúl, who just retired from his noble profession, after a long and meritorious career as a Mechanical Engineer.

Or perhaps, God forbids, a plain-vanilla, mediocre, self-conceited brat.

We would like to find out ourselves...

That is why AL DÍA launched last week one of the most exciting editorial projects during our 25 years of existence as an independent news outlet —owned and operated by journalists— here in Philadelphia, home to the second largest settlement of the large Puerto Rican Diáspora in the U.S.
