Associate District Manager Jack Hamby spoke on the concept of diversity and its importance in the workplace. “I believe this is the most diverse group of people I have ever worked with,” Hamby said.

Highlight of the event was a fun game of Loteria! -- a traditional Hispanic game similar to American Bingo -- which brought additional Hispanic culture into the event.
