The ASU Hispanic Convocation was not just a proud moment for students and families, but also for Raúl A. Monreal III.
On December 13, 2017, Monreal was presented the 2017 Horquilla Award during the Hispanic Convocation. The award is named after the the Spanish translation representing the Sun Devil “fork.”
The ASU Los Diablos Latino Alumni Association Board of Directors recognized him for contributing to the association’s mission of enabling students to achieve their degree at ASU through fundraising and scholarships. In 1998, he was also the recipient of the ASU Founders’ Day Young Alumni Achievement Award.
“I’m honored to receive this award as a proud ASU alumnus,” said Monreal. “This plaque will be displayed prominently next to my ASU engineering diploma.”
