Diane Walker, Doña Eulalia Award Recipient

If you look at Monday's entry you'll see background information about the Doña Eulalia Award.  You'll also see Alex Schultz as this year's recipient.  We're fortunate this year to acknowledge two people in our community who have shown extraordinary support for the Latino Heritage Parade & jamaica.

Diane Walker is also a recipient this year.  For the past 8 years she has shared her creativity with us and the greater community.  Over the years that creativity has resulted in ofrendas, historical fashion runways, a cardboard plane, book displays, exhibits, and so much more.  The collaborative efforts have truly resulted in an event that took place at La Pintoresca Library and Park.  

Diane was born to a working class family of eight siblings in Hot Springs, Arkansas. She was the first child in her family to receive a degree from a higher learning institution.  

Over her 25-year tenure, she has been the manager at Linda Vista, San Rafael, Allendale,  Lamanda Park, La Pintoresca and Villa Parke branch libraries and is currently managing Hastings Ranch Branch of the Pasadena Public Library . 

Diane is proud of her creative flair and is very passionate about her work with children. She lets her light shine and you can't help but be drawn into her positive energy.
