Mayor C. Bruce Rose has issued a proclamation designating Hispanic Heritage Month in Wilson from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15.

The proclamation notes that people of Hispanic and Latino origin make up 9.6% of North Carolina’s population and 10.8% of the population in Wilson County.

“By issuing this, the city of Wilson also reaffirms that Hispanics and their economic, societal and cultural contributions are welcomed and supported in the community,” according to the Association of Mexicans in North Carolina, or AMEXCAN, a Greenville-based nonprofit that applied for the proclamation.
