CBS RADIO Spanish Hits KMVK (MEGA 107.5)/DALLAS morning host EDGAR "SHOBOY" SOTELO has won an online vote for the 2012 MILLERCOORS "Líder of the Year." SOTELO will receive a $25,000 grant for the MAGDALENO LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE to implement a Latino leadership project with the brewer.
"I am honored to have been selected as the 2012 MILLERCOORS Líder of the Year and grateful for the platform that God has given me to continue serving our community," said SOTELO. "I want to thank everyone who voted for me—with your votes you have invested in the future of our tremendous servant leaders at the MAGDALENO LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE and the thousands of lives they will inspire. Keep serving the community and 'no te aguites' (don't let anything bring you down)."
"As a local celebrity, EDGAR has used his influence to make a difference in his community, and that is one of the marks of a true leader," said MILLERCOORS Manager, Multicultural Community Commerce and Partnerships JOSE RUANO. "This year's competition among the 12 Líderes was very tough, as each is an incredible example of Latino leadership. We are proud to continue highlighting the work of Latinos in our communities, such as EDGAR, and trust that they will positively influence future generations."
"When I was chosen as the Líder of the Year two years ago, I was inspired to establish the MAGDALENO LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE to empower students to become servant leaders and serve our community in a spirit of excellence," said RAUL MAGDALENO, founder of the MAGDALENO LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE and 2010 MILLERCOORS Líder of the Year. "Now I am proud to pass the baton to EDGAR, one of our most dedicated volunteers, to receive this coveted and well deserved honor. The $25,000 award will be invaluable for us to continue our mission of building more servant leaders for our country."
