SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 15-year veteran teacher at Monroe Clark Middle School in City Heights will be honored by the Padres Friday night with their second Hispanic Heritage Comunidad Award.
Armando Catano was selected by members of the Padres' Hispanic Community Leadership Council for his dedication to improving the lives of youth. The Tijuana native teaches social studies and Spanish and leads the school's Cesar Chavez Service Club, in which students feed the homeless and work in neighborhood clean-up efforts.

The awards were established this year to honor people who make a positive impact on San Diego's Hispanic community. The first recipient was Dr. Raul Trejo of the Scripps Family Medicine Residency Program and the San Ysidro Health Center.
