At President Obama’s invitation, MicroTech President and CEO Tony Jimenez attended the Whitehouse’s Cinco de Mayo celebration. During this celebration, President Obama hosted a reception in the East Room to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and honor those who courageously fought at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
As part of the event the President was joined by Mexico’s Undersecretary Sergio Alocer, Ambassador Alejandro Estivill and special musical guests from the Esperanza Azteca Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles and Puebla. During this event President Obama emphasized that Cinco de Mayo gives us the opportunity to remember “how deeply Mexican-American culture is woven into the fabric of this country.” The President noted that people of Mexican descent have especially influenced U.S. commerce, culture, literature, and of course, food. “It is important to maintain strong cultural ties and celebrate the accomplishments of Americans of all backgrounds,” said Tony Jimenez, an active member of the Latino community.
