USCIS Director Receives Public Service Award at Hispanic Gala

Release Date:

USCIS Director León Rodríguez has long been active in the Montgomery County, Maryland, community, both as a private citizen and as county attorney from 2007 to 2010.

On Sept. 10, the board of the Montgomery County Executive Hispanic Gala presented Director Rodríguez with its Public Service Award at the annual event. The gala raises funds for scholarships for Hispanic students enrolled in higher education in the state.

According to gala founder Lorna Virgili, the award is in "recognition of his impeccable record of public service in Montgomery County and for his help in achieving significant community partnerships so that permanent residents learn more about citizenship and the naturalization process."
