Favorite Son of the Valley to Speak to Incoming 6th Graders


One the Valley's favorite sons will share his story with incoming 6th graders on September 20th 2017. Congressman's Cardenas' parents 
Andrés and María Cárdenas came to California over 50 years ago from the state of Jalisco, Mexico. They sought out the opportunity to excel through hard work. It was through his hard work and perseverance that they were able to accomplish what they did. Andres worked first in the fields, then as a laborer and later established his own business. Andres and Maria proudly raised a family of eleven children, instilling in them the same values of hard work and discipline. The family grew up in a modest home in Pacoima. Andrés and María Cárdenas continuously supported their children and encouraged them to succeed. They were fortunate enough to see their sons and daughters earn degrees in many fields, such as education, psychology and engineering.

 

Congressman Cardenas has spent the last 20 plus years serving the community as a public servant while having the distinction of being the first Latino in the San Fernando Valley to be elected to the U.S. Congress.
