Hispanic Heritage Month: Shaping the Bright Future of America


With the theme “Shaping the Bright Future of America,” Dallas ISD celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15) by recognizing and thanking Hispanic educators who are contributing to building strong future leaders for Dallas.

“Dallas ISD embraces the diversity of our students, families and staff,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Hinojosa. “In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I commend our school teachers and administrators for not only working hard to provide a quality education to all students but also for empowering the youth to embrace their heritage and culture to continue sharing traditions with future generations.”

Fifty-five percent of Dallas ISD’s enrollment is composed of Hispanic students and a large number of district staff shares the same heritage.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage, we salute our Hispanic educators who are helping us to Shape the Bright Future of America. Meet one of our own Dallas ISD graduates, now leading one of Dallas ISD’s high schools located in the heart of Oak Cliff.

Born in Mexico, Diana Nuñez, principal of W. H. Adamson High School, came to the United States with her parents and six siblings when she was in fourth grade. Nuñez attended John H. Reagan Elementary, W. E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy and graduated from the last class attending Business Management Center Magnet High School class in Crozier Tech. Watch the video to learn about Nuñez’s passion for education and becoming a role model for students.

Additional videos will follow during the next month.
