As part of Hispanic Heritage Celebrations, the city of Miami Beach will honor some of its community leaders in the arts, education, business, law enforcement and social services.

After nominations, Jose Rafael Martinez will be awarded in the arts, Tanya Diaz for education, Karpawich Family from Chica Tequilas for business, Joe Gato as a general, David King for public safety and Herb Sosa as a social service provider.
